Zinedine Zidane has resigned as manager of Real Madrid with a timely outcome, after a disappointing season that saw them terminate their march without a primary cup, aso Naija reports.
According to Sportsmail, Zidane would have stepped away from the club regardless of whether they secured the title after Zidane sensed for some time that he did not have the authorization of the club’s president, Florentino Perez.
Spanish publication AS, report Zidane has already informed both the club’s directors and the first-team squad that he has left the club.
The Frenchman had been in charge of two spells since 2016 and has won three Champions League in the Spanish capital.
He also guided Madrid to the LaLiga title last season but they were unable to repeat the feat this time around in a trophy-less campaign after struggling with injuries and an aging squad.
They lost in the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea and were also tossed out of the Copa del Rey at the round of 32 stages.
Zidane is anticipated to be an immediate target for Juventus or the France national team following his withdrawal from the Bernabeu
