Zidane Resigns As Real Madrid Coach

By Akinwale Kasali

Few days after winning his third consecutive UEFA Champions League trophy with Real Madrid, coach Zinedine Zidane is set to bid the Los Bloncos farewell.

Zidane made this disclosure earlier today that he was leaving the Spanish giants, which is presently surprising to many soccer fans and analysts around the world.

“I have taken the decision to not continue next year as Real Madrid coach. After three years I need another discourse, another method of working,” he told a hastily convened press conference.

Zidane has called a previously unannounced press conference for 1100 GMT on Thursday, generating reactions from journalists who were contemplating on what the [press conference is going to be about.

“At 1pm, Zinedine Zidane will appear before the media,” the club said in a statement, without giving details about the reason for the press conference.

Zidane, 45, had been under pressure to win the European crown after finishing way off the pace behind La Liga winners Barcelona.
Real beat Liverpool 3-1 in the final in Kiev on Saturday, making Zidane the first coach in history to win three successive Champions League titles.
Zidane officially announced his departure from the Madrid club.

He was flanked at the press conference by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez who said Zidane’s announcement was “totally unexpected”.

Zidane said his decision had nothing to do with Cristiano Ronaldo hinting that he will also leave the club.
