Football legend Zinedine Zidane reportedly stepped down as manager of Real Madrid on Wednesday evening after the club's recent disappointing performances. The news about Zizou's resignation was published by Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano on his official Twitter account, while the club has not commented on the issue so far.
Later in the day, the Spanish club confirmed that Zidane had left his position.
The French superstar previously expressed his fury, addressing the recent misfortunes at Real Madrid.
"My state of mind? Right now I'm p***** off because we didn't manage to win the league", he said. "If you ask me, that's the answer".
The team has just fallen two points behind their rivals from Atletico Madrid in the La Liga standings, while also dropping out of the last round of the Copa del Rey after losing 1-2 to Alcoyano earlier this year. Real also lost to Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals.
