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

Speaking to a news conference today, Zidane said, "Everything changes" which " is why I took this decision". 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.

"It's a unusual moment to do so, I know, but an important one too", he said. "After three years I need another discourse, another method of working", he told a hastily convened press conference. But (Zidane) knows I wanted him as a player and as a manager.

"I have thought a lot about this decision and I can't go back on it".

Zidane has been in the job 28 months and has already delivered three Champions League titles, the joint-most of any manager in the competition's history. I tried to convince him but I know how it is.

Collymore believes Zidane would be the flawless replacement for the former Chelsea boss who would be capable of enticing Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford amid uncertainty over the Portuguese forward's own future.

"We always want more from the players, and a moment comes when I can not ask them for more", he said.


The Chelsea manager (for now, anyway) has never played or coached in Spain but has the kind of winner's mentality that is so important to Perez and Real Madrid.

Cape Town - The football world was left stunned by Zinedine Zidane's sensational decision to leave Spanish giants Real Madrid after an unprecedented successful spell at the club. After three years, this is what I've made a decision to do.

Zidane confirmed his departure at the start of the briefing, just five days after he presided over the 3-1 Champions League final win over Liverpool.

With Cristiano Ronaldo casting doubt on his Real Madrid future, Sid Lowe breaks down the factors that make a summer exit unlikely for him.

"I am doing this for the good of this team, for this club".

It was a surprising announcement by Zidane, who won nine titles as Madrid coach, including the three Champions League titles, one Spanish league title, one Spanish Super Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and two Club World Cups. But the trophy it lifted in Kiev on Saturday was the only one of Zidane's second full season in charge.
