Zidane steps down as Madrid coach

Zidane has won two champions league trophy as a coach

Zidane celebrates with the trophy after winning the UEFA Champions League in Milan.

Zinedine Zidane, a head coach for only 17 months, became the first manager to oversee back-to-back champions league victory since Arrigo Sacchi’s fabled AC Milan team won the tournament in 1989 and 1990.

It crowns a glorious season for Madrid, who have pulled off a La Liga and European Cup double for the first time since 1958, having also won the Club World Cup and European Super Cup.

Zidane’s triumph was his former club Juve’s misery, Massimiliano Allegri’s side crashing to a fifth successive defeat in Champions League finals and seventh in total, extending their own desperately unwanted record.

The first Champions League final to be played beneath a closed roof saw Juve hit their heads against a familiar ceiling as they missed out on a chance to complete the first Treble in their history.
