Zinedine Zidane abruptly resigns as Real Madrid manager

GETTYZinedine Zidane QUITS Real Madrid Claims are circling in Spain that the boss is going

The three-time Champions League-winning boss announced his decision at an impromptu press conference at 12 noon BST on Thursday.

Real Madrid are on the hunt for a new manager after Zinedine Zidane left the Spanish giants after a hugely successful two-and-a-half-years at the helm. "I am a victor and if I don't see it clearly that we will keep winning, it's time for a change".

Zidane said he felt like it was the right time for him and the club to make a change. 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 shocked the world by claiming a third consecutive Champions League title with Real Madrid after defeating Liverpool 3-1. 'For a lot it will not make any sense but for me it's the way to go after working here for three years.

"The players need a change".

The former Arsenal manager has said he loved Real Madrid as a child and has been installed as the favourite to replace Zidane.

"After winning a European Cup it is an unexpected decision", club president Florentino Perez commented. "I can proudly say that I am thankful to the fans". He knows there is always an appetite for him to return, that the bridge hasn't been burned. "After three Champions Leagues in a row, and titles he made a decision to leave".

"If I was the manager here next season, it would have been tough for us to win trophies".

Barcelona, historically Real's greatest rivals, ran away with La Liga this season and finished 17 points clear of Zidane's side.

His unparalleled success in the Champions League has been unable to shield him from criticism, and there has always been speculation that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been lined up to replace him. I did it as a player, and now again as a coach.

"These players have nothing to do with my decision, it's simply something I've chosen to do".

"After three years, it's my decision and perhaps I can get it wrong, but I think that after such time it is the moment".

'I'm not going to coach another team.
