Head coach of Madrid “Real” Zinedine Zidane announced his resignation after he won the main tournament three times – the Champions League. The former football player told about this at a press conference.

The French coach has not yet explained his decision to leave and thanked the club for the trust. According to Zidane, the club needs changes and “new methods.”

I love this club and its president, who gave me the opportunity to play and manage the dream club. But everything changes, so I decided to leave.

According to club president Florentino Perez, no one was ready for such a decision and the team “does not know who will replace Zidane.” “I do not want to say goodbye to him, so I say good-bye,” the president added.

Users of social networks and fans of the Madrid club obviously did not expect such a decision Zidane, but some reacted to him with humor.

On May 26, less than a week ago, Real Madrid became the winner of the Champions League for the 13th time , which was an absolute record among all teams. Together with Zidane, the team won this trophy three times, as well as two UEFA Super Cups, once the Spanish Championship and twice the World Cup among clubs.
