|Zidane Leaves Madrid by saajus: 12:28pm On May 31, 2018|
Zidane has stepped down as Real Madrid manager following a brief spell of unprecedented success as a first-time coach.
The Frenchman, a World Cup and Champions League winner as a player, took over from Rafael Benitez mid-season in January 2016 and steered Madrid back on course to win their 11th European Cup.
Zidane helped Madrid become the first team in 40 years to win three consecutive European Cups and the first in the Champions League era, marking him out as one of club football’s most successful coaches less than three years into his managerial career.And yet the 45-year-old former Ballon d’Or announced on Thursday morning in a surprise press conference at Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training ground that he would not be continuing as the club’s manager.
“I have taken the decision to resign my post,” he said.

To preserve his legacy, that is a good move.
