Zidane Quits Real Madrid

Zidane called a news conference just an hour-and-a-half before announcing his decision, in which he said: "I have taken the decision to not continue going into the next season. I am a victor and if I don't see it clearly that we will keep winning, it's time for a change".

"I am doing this for the good of this team, for this club", Zidane explained in a hastily arranged press conference at Madrid's Valdebebas training ground.

"What I think is that this team needs to continue winning but I think it needs a change, a different voice, another methodology and that's why I took this decision".

He is quitting in spectacular fashion as he has now won the La Liga championship, two FIFA Club World Cups, and three Champions League titles. I did not know, maybe secretly he knew because he wanted to make it happen with Mr. Perez, not with us.

Decision comes just days after he won the Champions League for the third year in a row. "Big players need a change", he added. I have a special fondness for this club and I want to thank again for all the support.

Madrid's search for a replacement will, of course, begin as soon as possible. I thank him for his commitment, his passion.

The 45-year-old Frenchman led Real to their fourth Champions League trophy in five years - and third under his management - by masterminding victory over Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday, but Los Blancos could only finish third in LaLiga. I am not exhausted of coaching after three years. "With me it would have been complicated to keep winning".

Mr. Zizou. I've learned a lot by your side!

Barcelona, historically Real's greatest rivals, ran away with La Liga this season and finished 17 points clear of Zidane's side. As one of the most promising young managers in the world, it's only natural that Madrid would be interested, but can the prise him from White Hart Lane?
