Zidane announced that he will be stepping down as the manager of the Real Madrid at an unscheduled press conference on Thursday.

Zidane was brought in to replace Raphael Benitez in January 2016 and has led the Madrid side to the three Champions League titles in the two and a half season he has been in charge.

According to several reports, Zidane's decision to quit was a result of the event after the Champions League final in which star players Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale hinted they may leave the Santiago Bernabeu.

He hinted his departure in February when he said, "Being a coach is extremely tiring - more so at a club like Real Madrid. When I feel there is nothing more to give, I'll walk away."
