Zinedine Zidane has announced this decision to step down as Real Madrid manager with immediate effect.

The news, revealed at a press conference on Thursday, comes as a great shock, considering that the Frenchman guided Los Blancos to a history third consecutive UEFA Champions League title only five days ago.

"This team must keep winning, and it needs a change after three years, another voice, another method of working."
