Zidane Steps Down As Madrid Coach
Zidane however confirmed that he voluntarily left the position, and was not forced out of the club.
His decision was confirmed in a hastily packaged news conference on Thursday.
“It’s time to go. These players need a different discourse, a different methodology,” the former French player said.
“It’s my decision,” he said. “For many people, this will not make sense, but it does for me. It’s time for a change.”
Naija News recalls that the Frenchman’s last game in charge of the La Liga giants is the 3-1 Champions League final win over Liverpool on May 26.
