Zinedine Zidane has resigned as Real Madrid gaffer, days after becoming the first coach to win the Champions League in three consecutive seasons.

Appearing at a press conference on Thursday, Zidane said: “I have taken the decision to not continue going into the next season.

“For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived. It was not an easy decision.

“I think it’s the moment, both for me, the team and the club (to step down).

“It’s a strange moment to do so, I know, but an important one too. I had to do this for everyone.

“This side should carry on winning and needs a change for this. After three years it needs another voice, another method of work, for this I took this decision.”

The 45-year-old replaced Rafael Benitez in January 2016.

Despite his European success, he has come under pressure for winning only one La Liga title in his three seasons in charge.

In an address which was broadcast on Marca’s Facebook page, Zidane said: “I have taken the decision to not continue going into the next season.

“For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived. It was not an easy decision.

“I will be close to this club for the rest of my life. I want to thank the fans, who always supported me both as a coach and a player. There were tough moments during the season and although I was sometimes whistled at, I want to thank the fans.

“This is a beautiful moment as we have just won a third straight Champions League and I have now reflected and made this decision. Even the players need this change, I must thank them too.”
