The Sun (UK)

Zinedine Zidane has announced he is leaving Real Madrid less than a week after leading the club to an unprecedented third successive Champions League title.

“I have decided not to be Real Madrid coach next season,” Zidane said, according to Goal.com.

“I spoke to Florentino yesterday [Wednesday] to tell him my thoughts, my feelings. I know it’s a strange moment for everyone involved, but I think it’s the right decision.

“I think this team needs to keep winning but I think after three years a change is needed, something different, a different message, different ways of going about things.

“That’s why I decided to take this decision. It’s a club I love and I love the president too, he brought me to this huge club and I will always be grateful, but I think a change is needed so I will not be here next season.”
