Zinedine Zidane QUITS Real Madrid: Shock announcement will be made within MINUTES

He announced his departure in a press conference on Thursday afternoon. I think it is the right one but I completely understand any reaction. I would have liked to convince him to stay on but I know what he's like. I'll always be thankful.

Farewell: "I want to thank him for his dedication, his passion, his love during these years and his behaviour has always been an example of the values of Real Madrid".

"It is a sad day for me and will be for the fans, the players and everyone at the club", said Perez.

He told Real Madrid's president, Florentino Perez, that he would be leaving on Wednesday before informing the players. "All I can offer is my love and respect and remind him that this is his home".

"It was a huge impact for me yesterday when I heard this decision. All I want to do is remind him that this club is his home and family".
