It is the second end of an illustrious union between Zidane and Real Madrid. After a barren season with Los Blancos, head coach Zinedine Zidane throws in the towel and resigns as coach.
What was previously just a rumour has now become official as of this morning, Thursday 27 May.
Zidane has given his players a head start. According to the newspaper L'Equipe, which provides the information, he announced his departure on Wednesday evening before meeting the club's president, Florentino Perez, on Thursday morning.
The French sports daily reports that Antonio Conte, who recently resigned from the Inter Milan bench, is the favorite to take over the White House. The French daily reports that former Merengues captain Raul "is also mentioned as a contender".
Real Madrid finished second in La Liga. The Madrid club was eliminated in the semi-finals of the Champions League by Chelsea.
Zidane was brought in for the second spell three years ago when he previously won back to back three titles of the champions league with Madrid. In his second spell he only won the La Liga title in 2020 and crashed out of the champions league to Ajax Amsterdam at the quarter finals that same year.
