Zinedine Zidane Resigns As Real Madrid Coach

"I made the decision not to continue as coach of Real Madrid", he said at the surprise press conference announced just an hour before. After three years it needs another voice, another method of work, for this I took this decision.

# Zinedine Zidane is the first coach to win three straight European Cup titles in any era.

Zidane said all of this in a hastily organised press conference.

But he also added: "I'm not exhausted of coaching after just three years of coaching". But I feel it's time. "I am not going to coach another team [right away]". I don't want this to be a goodbye but a "see you soon".

Zinedine Zidane has renounced his position as Real Madrid's manager and has called it a day on his triumphant stint at the club.

The biggest number of casualties was in March when a transport plane crashed at Hmeimim airbase, killing all 39 people on board. Russian-backed Syrian troops hold the western half of Deir Ezzor province, which is divided diagonally by the Euphrates River.

During a career in which many rated him as the best of his generation, Zidane also helped France to home World Cup victory in 1998, scoring two goals in a 3-0 final win against Brazil.

The 25-year-old, who was instrumental to the Galacticos' successful Champions League title defence last season, has struggled for playing time this season - with just five goals to his credit in all appearances this term.

"I love this club a lot, the president, who gave me everything - to play first at this great club. I would have liked to convince him [to stay] but I know how he is". "I've no doubt he will come back but, if he needs to rest, he deserves that".

Zidane led Madrid to an unprecedented third successive Champions League title on Saturday, as the club managed to put their disappointing third-place LaLiga finish to one side.

Attention will immediately turn to Zidane's successor, with two of the previous leading candidates in Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and Germany national team coach Joachim Low both having recently signed new extensions to their current deals.
