Zinedine Zidane to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season

Sat 15 May 2021 | 22:06

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has made his decision to leave the Spanish capital at the end of the season.

According to

Goal

, the Frenchmen has told his squad ahead of their 2-2 draw against

Sevilla

in La Liga that he would step down at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Zidane

's current deal at Santiago Bernabeu expires in 2022 but he has repeatedly refused to confirm he will still be at the club next season.

Zidane first took over Los Blancos' first team in January 2016, then surprisingly resigned after the 2017/18 season - after winning three consecutive Champions League titles. In March 2019, he returned to Real Madrid after the engagements of

Julen Lopetegui

and

Santiago Solari

were unsuccessful.

Games against

Athletic Club

and

Villarreal

will be Zidane’s last two games in charge at the Spanish capital.

Zidane’s decision to part ways with the club cannot be a spontaneous choice, given that the Madrid boss has made his doubts regarding continuing in his role clear during the season. Mental and physical exhaustion have been named as primary reasons to put an end to his second spell in charge of the club.
