Zidane leaves Madrid

Zinedine Zidane’s career as head coach of Real Madrid comes to an end after a trophy-less 2020-21 season. Madrid finished as runners-up in LaLiga, while they were knocked out in the Champions League semi-finals and exited in the last 32 of the Copa del Rey.

Zidane returned to take charge of Los Blancos in 2019, after a previous stint from 2016 to 2018 where they won Europe’s continental crown three times in a row.

The former France international has informed the club of his final decision following weeks of speculation around his post.

Zidane had requested a few days to consider his options and has now made his final decision and contacted his players individually.
