Few coaches would want to remain in a club where they have virtually won all. So it wasn’t a total shock when Real Madrid’s Coach, Zinedine Zidane called it quits with the club. With three Champions League Cups in the modern era of football, where many didn’t think it possible, Real Madrid’s phenomenal Coach has nothing else to prove.
“Winning the LaLiga title last season is my best memory as the coach of Real Madrid,” he intimated.
“After three years it’s difficult to continue coaching, even more so after winning three Champions Leagues.
“I just didn’t see clearly that we would win it again.”
Thursday’s announcement brings to a close one of the finest chapters in Los Blancos’ history, they’ve done things that few thought possible in the modern era, and the former midfielder believes he will always remain close to the club.
“It’s a difficult moment as I’m saying I’m leaving,” he explained.
“However, it’s not a sad day for me, it’s a case of I’ll see you soon.
“I will always be close to this club, I know many people here and that relationship won’t change.”
When pressed on whether or not the various crises surrounding Real Madrid and their star players had forced him into this decision, the Frenchman was quick to quash such speculation.
“No, not at all, that has nothing to do with it,” he confirmed.
“I had the respect of all the players, which has been fundamental in achieving such success.
“These players have nothing to do with my decision, it’s simply something I’ve chosen to do.”
