Zidane resigns as Real Madrid manager

Zidane claimed an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League title when Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday, capping a remarkable period in his first job in senior club management.

'This is a club that has won 13 European Cups so I'm happy to be part of this history.

"We have lived complicated moments this season and we heard the whistles from the fans but that's part of this club and demanding fans". This is the most important thing now'. Zidane is leaving the European champions after two-and-half years in charge, he told a news conference today.

Club president Florentino Perez said as he opened the news conference: "It is a sad day, for me, for the club, the players, everyone at this club".

Whether something behind the scenes has occurred to change Zidane's mind is unclear, perhaps winning a third Champions League seemed a fitting conclusion to him, yet Los Blancos have now been left in an unenviable position.


"Of course, I could return, I'll always be near to this club as it's close to my heart". I wanted him to stay forever and I wanted to convince him to stay.

With Wenger now available and suggesting he wants to continue working in the game at the age of 68, his appointment may be viewed by Perez as the ideal stop gap with some of the likely contenders for the job seemingly unavailable.

"That's why I've taken that decision". All I want to do is remind him that this club is his home and family. "If I do not see clearly that we are going to continue winning, a moment comes when you say better to step aside".

"This is "until soon" as I have no doubt that you will be back".
