Frenchman, Zinedine Zidane has reportedly resigned as Real Madrid manager with immediate effect.
This is coming just days after the club were beaten to the La Liga title by Atletico Madrid.
The Frenchman’s reported departure comes at the end of a disappointing campaign for the 13-time European champions, who also lost to Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals as they failed to win a trophy for the first time in 11 seasons.
Football journalist, Fabrizio Romano made this known in a tweet on Wednesday night.

Zidane first took the helm in January 2016 and guided Real to the 2017 La Liga title and an unprecedented hat-trick of Champions League titles before abruptly quitting on May 31, 2018.
He returned in 2019, winning a second La Liga crown in 2020 and the Spanish Super Cup.
