Real Madrid have confirmed Zinedine Zidane has decided to resign as manager.
Zidane had asked the club for a few days to consider his future, following the conclusion of the 2020/2021 season.
Later on Wednesday, he confirmed the move to Madrid’s board, and then the squad.
“Real Madrid announces that Zinedine Zidane has decided to bring to an end his current spell as coach of our club,” a Madrid statement read.
“It’s time now to respect his decision and show our appreciation for his professionalism, dedication and passion for all these years, and for what he represents for Real Madrid… He knows that Real Madrid is and always will be his home.”
Real beat Villarreal 2-1 in their final game of the La Ligaa season on Saturday, but that wasn’t enough to overtake rivals Atletico Madrid, who secured a 2-1 comeback win at Real Valladolid to clinch the trophy.
