Zinedine Zidane just resigned as Real Madrid Head Coach
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.
Zidane, the former Real, Juventus and Bordeaux midfielder, is understood to be under contract in Madrid until 2020.
Stepping up from managing the ‘Castilla’ B team, he replaced Rafael Benitez in January 2016 and although Real were runners-up to Barcelona at the end of the league campaign, he toasted European glory as city rivals Atletico Madrid were vanquished after a penalty shootout in Milan.
Zidane followed up his maiden Champions League crown as a coach with a LaLiga title and in June 2017 his side delivered a more emphatic European Cup final triumph as his former employers Juve were humbled 4-1 in Cardiff.
YOU WILL BE MISSED, SIR
Goodluck in your future endeavors
