After a mixed season, Zinedine Zidane is close to stepping down as Real Madrid coach. Doubts had hung for many months around the future of the former French international.
After Real Madrid’s last game and the loss of the La Liga title, Zinedine Zidane refused to decide on his future. The French technician wanted to take a few days and see his president Florentino Perez. “The most important thing is not me. It’s what we do with the players all season,” he had simply blurted out. This time the situation is clear: he will quit his duties as coach of the Merengue.

There was little doubt about Zizou’s future and RMC Sport had already announced it several weeks ago. For many months, his departure had been mentioned by the Spanish press: sometimes in the form of dismissal due to disappointment in the Champions League (elimination by Chelsea in the semi-final, after a course not always obvious), sometimes in the form of resignation . This time, it clearly smacks of the end.
The departure of Zinedine Zidane will be formalized by the weekend by the Madrid club. As advance that the former international tricolor would have announced his decision to its leaders and its players. According to our information, he did not see his president Florentino Perez this Wednesday and should meet him this Thursday.
