Pulse Sport: Zinedine Zidane Steps Down as Real Madrid Head Coach

French National Zinedine Zidane has stepped down as Real Madrid head coach, five days after leading the club to their third consecutive Champions League victory.

Zidane made the announcement on Thursday stating that he felt he had taken the club as far as he could.

“I love this club. What I think is that this team needs to continue winning but I think it needs a change, a different voice, another methodology. And that’s why I took this decision,” Zidane said according to BBC.

Zidane, 45, took over from Rafael Benitez as Real Madrid Head Coach in January 2016.

He led the club to 104 wins and 29 draws out of 149 games, and won nine trophies.

Red Madrid president Florentino Perez will decide on who will next manage the club.
