MADRID – Real Madrid has announced that coach Zinedine Zidane has left the football club, just days after they were beaten to the La Liga title by Atletico Madrid.
“We must now respect his decision and express our gratitude for his professionalism, dedication and passion over the years and what he means to Real Madrid. Zidane is one of Real Madrid’s great icons and his legacy extends beyond what he has achieved as a coach and player at our club. He is aware that he has a place in the hearts of the Real Madrid fans and that he will always have a home at Real Madrid,” it said in a statement on Thursday.
Real Madrid confirmed that this was Zidane’s decision and not the club’s.
