Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane steps down after winning Champions League

Zidane leaves the most trophy-laden period in the club's modern history in his wake and it will be a tough act to follow. Pochettino is building a team that he hopes can compete for the Premier League title, has just signed a new contract at the club, and Spurs have a new stadium to play in next season. It will not be easy and his task of following Zidane will be even more hard. This was also his third consecutive Champions League title.

Karembeu, who started alongside Zidane in the 1998 World Cup final, knows full well the pressure of Real Madrid.

Gareth Bale, whose personal situation could now improve under a new coach, was informed of the change on Thurdsay morning. I did it as a player, and now again as a coach.

It was only in January 2016 that he took charge of the full Real team.

"When I saw his body language I was like, 'Is he thinking about something?"

In a report by The Sun reported on Thursday, May 31, seen by TUKO.co.ke, Club President Florentino Perez confirmed Zidane broke to him the news that he would be leaving Santiago Barnebeu on Wednesday, May 30. "But we can only take the decision and respect it".

"It's a odd moment, but this team needs a change to keep winning, it needs another speech, another work methodology and that's why I made this decision".

"This club needs a change to keep winning", Zidane said.

"These players have nothing to do with my decision, it's simply something I've chosen to do". "Having done well in the last three years, it is the right decision", he said.

Things did not go as expected after the win over Liverpool.

He said in February that he would walk away if he felt "there is nothing more to give".

"Coach, it has been an honour to work with you and to learn from you", he posted on Instagram. I loved him as a player and as a manager.

Zidane, as ever the embodiment of dignified statesmanship. The coach said "There is deterioration, I'm getting worn down with this squad". "The decision may not make a lot of sense to many, but it does to me".

I have No words to thank you for everything you've done for this shirt, Real Madrid and the Madrid fans. He also revealed recently he was approached several times by the Spanish side during his time in London. We finished with a spectacular moment.

However, a big reason behind his inability to bring in elite players to the club was the refusal of the Arsenal board in loosening their purse strings.

One reporter asked Perez a question but he refused to answer it.

That's a total of nine trophies - an average of a trophy every 16.6 matches. After three years the club needs another discourse, another method of working " I don't see myself continuing to win this year and I am a victor, I don't like to lose.

Zidane replaced Rafa Benitez after a stint with Madrid's "B" team.
