Football legend, Zinedine Zidane, has called it quit as coach of Real Madrid football club.
The 48-year-old who returned for his second spell at the club – ten months after his departure – had narrowly lost out to Atletico Madrid on winning the La Liga last weekend.
In a statement released by the Galacticos, the Spanish club had thanked Zidane for his commitment and achievement during his time in Madrid. They also insisted that his decision will be respected.
His departure also means that his one-year pending contract will be terminated after a season occluded of a single trophy. Furthermore, it’s also the first time in 11 years that Real Madrid has failed to win a single honour all through a season.
During his first managerial stint at the club, the French man had guided them to winning three consecutive UEFA Champions League trophies and a League triumph in the process.
He also returned to win another league title last season, making him one of the most decorated icons; both as a player and coach for the club.
In total, his trophy cabinet as a manager includes three Champions League trophies, two La Liga titles, two Club World Cups, two Uefa Super Cups and two Spanish Super Cups.
