The 45-year-old Frenchman led Real to their fourth Champions League trophy in five years - and third under his management - by masterminding victory over Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday, but Los Blancos could only finish third in LaLiga.

"It was a huge impact for me yesterday when I heard this decision". There was no backward step. This team must continue winning and it needs a change that will be good for everyone.
"After three years it needs another voice, another method of work, for this I took this decision", said Zidane. "It's my decision, it could be wrong". I did it as a player, and now again as a coach.
Real Madrid now is left scrambling to find its next manager. I have shared the transfers and telling players bad news with the president.
"I think he wasn't the right man for a coach in that he wasn't really happy in that position".
