Real Madrid News | Zinedine Zidane Decides To Quit As Real Madrid’s Head Coach

Zidane’s departure comes after a disappointing season in which the club finished second to rivals Atlético Madrid in a title race that went down to the wire. Real Madrid was also eliminated from the Champions League in the semi-finals by Chelsea, marking the first time in 11 seasons that they have failed to win a title.
