Earlier in the afternoon, a Real Madrid statement read, " Today, Thursday, May 31 at 1 pm, Zinedine Zidane will appear in front of the media in the press room of Ciudad Real Madrid.

"I have taken the decision to not continue next year as Real Madrid coach", the Frenchman told a hastily convened press conference, before adding he was not looking for another club to coach.

Zidane won nine major honours as Real coach and the 45-year-old's crowning glory came last Saturday as he joined an elite group of managers including Bob Paisley and Carlo Ancelotti by lifting the European Cup for the third time as coach.

He added: "It's a odd moment to do so, I know, but an important one too".

Zidane said there wasn't a specific reason that led him to his decision. "I wanted him to be next to me forever".
