Zidane quits as Real Madrid coach

Zinedine Zidane has resigned as Real Madrid manager with immediate effect, according to reports in Spanish media.

His resignation comes days after Los Blancos were beaten to La Liga by city rivals Atletico Madrid.

The 13-time European champions also lost to Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals as they failed to win a trophy for the first time in 11 seasons.

According to respected Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano, an official announcement of his departure would be made “in the next hours/days”.

Only 10 days ago Zidane, who has a contract until 2022, denied media speculation that he had already told his players that he would be leaving at the end of the season.

It marks the end of Zidane’s second spell in charge of the Spanish giants.

The legendary Frenchman first took the helm in January 2016 and guided Real to the 2017 La Liga title and an unprecedented hat-trick of Champions League titles before abruptly quitting on May 31, 2018.

He returned in 2019, winning a second La Liga crown in 2020 and the Spanish Super Cup.

Reports claim that former Juventus manager Max Allegri is set to replace him at the Bernabeu.
