The club confirmed the Frenchman’s exit in a statement on Thursday.

“It is now time to respect his decision and show him our appreciation for his professionalism, dedication and passion in all these years, and for what his figure represents for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid narrowly lost La Liga to city rivals Atletico on Saturday, after putting up an impressive performance towards the end of the season.
It was the end of Zidane’s second spell at the Spanish giants, which saw the club go trophyless for the first time in 11 years.
The 48-year-old won two La Liga and three UEFA Champions League trophies in his time in charge at the club.
