  • Zinedine Zidane leaves Real Madrid just days after leading club to third successive Champions League victory

He won the Spanish league title in his second season, then became the first manager to win the Champions League in his first three seasons when Real defeated Juventus in the 2017 final, and Liverpool this month. "I enjoy life as it happens, and what must be, will be".

Zidane announced his departure Thursday, less than a week after guiding Madrid to a third successive Champions League crown.

There will no doubt be a fight for the Frenchman's signature, but with many top jobs taken, he may decide to take some time out of the attractive game. "I understand, and what I can do is thank the fans not only as a coach but as a player they have always supported me".

The former Blues defender Sinclair told Sporting Bet: "I think for Hazard to be mentioned in the same category as Ronaldo or Messi, he would have to move to a club like Real Madrid".

Zidane admitted there were some hard moments over the course of the 2017-18 campaign, mentioning the Copa del Rey defeat to Leganes, and he felt that after two and a half seasons together, he just could not ask any more from the Madrid players.

" I will still be close to the club but this decision is a clear one that might not make sense to some people but it is the moment to make a change, for the players as well".




"I live in the present, that is the most important thing". After doing three years, it's the right decision. And while he did iterate that he is not looking to delve right back into management or inviting offers from teams, it is only logical for Zizou to be serenaded with offers.

It appears the 45-year-old Frenchman has decided that it won't ever get better than this for him at the famously demanding 13-time European champions.

Zidane has now won nine trophies since replacing Rafael Benitez in the Santiago Bernabeu dugout in January 2016.

The former Real Madrid man would have listened to an offer from his hometown club PSG, who have only just appointed Thomas Tuchel as their new manager.

Qatar is set to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, their first appearance at the tournament, so have already qualified automatically.

"I have just signed a long contract with Tottenham, and am happy here".
