Zidane’s second stint as head coach of Real Madrid is over after the club announced his departure.
A former ‘galactico’ who dazzled crowds at the Santiago Bernabeu and beyond, Zidane returned to Madrid for two terms as a coach.
Madrid announced on Thursday that Zidane has decided to end his current tenure as coach of the club.
“Now is the time to respect his decision and to show our appreciation for all his professionalism, dedication, and passion in all these years, and for what he represents to Real Madrid.
The legacy of Zinedine Zidane goes beyond his accomplishments at Real Madrid as a player and a coach.
“He knows he has a place in the hearts of Real Madrid fans and that he will always have a home at Real Madrid.”
From January 2016 to May 2018, Zidane won three consecutive Champions League titles and one LaLiga title.
