GETTYZinedine Zidane celebrates after the Champions League final

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".

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!
