Zidane resigns as Real Madrid head coach in shock announcement

After all, we've seen Real Madrid fire coaches after winning the Champions League.

These words now ring hollow with Florentino Perez scrambling to find a new coach to replace the outgoing Frenchman, especially with the two press conferences only two months' apart.

In January this year, Zidane confirmed he signed a contract extension at Real to keep him at the club until 2020 but just a month later said "when I feel there is nothing more to give, I'll walk away". "This is the right moment for everyone".

"This is the right moment for everyone, it might seem a bit unusual, but it had to be done for the good of everyone, the players, the club, and myself".

"We always want more from the players, and a moment comes when I can not ask them for more". After three years, this is what I've chose to do.

"But he did it so well and I think he's nearly surprised himself, so he went "this is it, this is finished..."

Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the frightful statements " that have been said about him on ABC". That led the drug maker Sanofi to say on social media that "racism is not a known side effect" of their product.

"That's why I chose to take this decision. You saw in the Copa [del Rey] this season and I can't forget our domestic campaign that easily". But it is the moment to [leave] here.

"I love this club, I love the president who has given me the chance to come as a player and then a manager and I am eternally grateful to him".

He guided Real Madrid to nine titles, including the La Liga title in 2016-17, while also winning two UEFA Super Cups, two Club World Cups, and one Spanish Super Cup during his tenure. I wanted him to stay forever and I wanted to convince him to stay.

Zidane led the Galacticos to claim the 2016 UCL title after beating their city rivals Atletico Madrid in his first season at the club.

Zidane plunged his Real Madrid future into doubt this morning by calling a shock press conference for 12pm [BST].
