Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says will leave club

Zinedine Zidane has announced his resignation as the head coach of Spanish club, Real Madrid, just five days after leading the club to an unprecedented third successive Champions League Victory.

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

Although Real lost only two of their first 15 league matches in the recently concluded Spanish championship, Ernesto Valverde's Barca were able to run away with the league following their vital 3-0 El Clasico win at the Bernabeu in December.

"I have decided not to be Real Madrid coach next season", said Zidane, who was joined by club president Florentino Perez.

Earlier in the afternoon, a Real Madrid statement read, " Today, Thursday, May 31 at 1 pm, Zinedine Zidane will appear in front of the media in the press room of Ciudad Real Madrid. "This team needs a change after three years".

"I love this club, I love the president who has given me the chance to come as a player and then a manager and I am eternally grateful to him".

"I have thought a lot about this decision and I can't go back on it". He steered Real to 104 wins and 29 draws, had 69.8% win rate, and won nine trophies.

Madrid's third-place LaLiga finish is likely the major factor in Zidane's departure, as Los Blancos ended the season 17 points adrift of bitter rivals and champions Barcelona.
