Zinedine Zidane has parted ways with Real Madrid after the club has announced that they have ended their partnership. Zinedine Zidane has resigned as a coach of Real Madrid and will not be working from the next season. The French specialist ended his current term as coach of Los Blancos for the second time.
He left the club for the first time with three consecutive titles in the Champions League for one of the most successful races of 2016-2018 to Madrid. In his two-year and five-month tenure, Madrid has won a total of nine trophies, including two Club World Cups, two UEFA Super Cups, a Spanish League, and a Spanish Super Cup.
Zidane’s contract was until June 2022 but according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Frenchman has decided to leave the position. The Frenchman’s farewell came close after a disappointing campaign of the 13-time European champion, who also lost to Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals as they failed to win the trophy for the first time in 11 seasons.
Zidane won the Spanish championship and the Spanish Super Cup with the club after returning from a break in 2019. Last season, Real reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and finished second in La Liga.
“It is now time to respect his decision and show him our appreciation for his professionalism, dedication and passion in all these years, and for what his figure represents for Real Madrid,” a club statement read.
“Zidane is one of the great myths of Real Madrid and his legend goes beyond what he has been as a coach and player of our club. He knows that he is at the heart of Real Madrid and that Real Madrid is and will always be his home.”
He recently dismissed talks about his future, saying that he would talk to the club. He said that he believed Madrid could do well without him as a coach.
