Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid exit shows he'll always surprise us - Christian Karembeu

  • Zinedine Zidane and club president Florentino Perez announce the manager's departure at Thursday's press conference

Zidane was a phenomenal player for Real Madrid, winning La Liga and Champions League trophies with the club.

Zidane told a news conference that "everything changes" and "that's why I took this decision".

"This club's history is huge, we always ask a lot of players, but there comes a moment when you think 'What more can I ask of them, after what they've done for me?' For this I think they need another discourse".

Hinting at differences in summer planning Zidane said: 'If I don't think clearly that we are going to keep winning then it is best to leave rather than continue with silly things'.

Zidane has won a total of nine trophies in two-and-a-half years at the Bernabeu including three consecutive Champions League titles. We always want more from the players, and a moment comes when I can not ask them for more. The players need a change, I want to thank them too, as in the end they are the ones who fight on the pitch.

"It could be a 'see you soon, ' because Madrid has given me everything and I'll be linked to this club my entire life", Zidane said.

Zidane's replacement has not been announced yet.




Real Madrid President, Florentino Perez has identified Zinedine Zidane's replacement.

"I want to thank Zizou for his dedication to the job, his passion and his affection".

"I did not know".

Zidane was under contract until 2020 but called time on his spell in charge after a third place finish in La Liga, behind Barcelona and City rivals Atletico Madrid. I am not exhausted of coaching after three years.

"After three years it's hard to continue coaching, even more so after winning three Champions Leagues". The club loves to change managers, no boss is ever truly safe there and talk is already rife about who will succeed Zidane. In the very next year, Zidane upped the ante with another European Cup victory against the mighty Italian side Juventus.

"I'm just proud of being your player". It is an unexpected decision - I loved him as a player, and coach, and wanted him always at my side. "He would like one day to coach the French national team".
