Real Madrid announced the departure of its French coach Zinedine Zidane, with the agreement of the two parties.
Zizou arrived Thursday at the headquarters of the club’s sports city, Valdebebas, to meet with the management and agree to leave, to confirm the news that his career with the Merengue had ended.
Zidane led Real Madrid in the second term, in 114 matches, achieving 69 victories, 25 draws and 20 defeats.
The team scored 207 goals, conceded 104 goals, and won the Spanish Super and LaLiga titles.
Zidane finished his first term, which was successful by all accounts with Real Madrid, where he won the Champions League for 3 consecutive seasons, by leaving in the summer of 2018.
Real Madrid lived in a state of confusion after the departure of Zidane, as the task was assigned to Julen Lopetegui, who was quickly sacked for poor results, then was succeeded by Argentine Santiago Solari and did not achieve anything new, to surprise everyone with Zidane’s return again in March 2019.
Zizou led Real Madrid in the last 11 rounds of the 2018-2019 season, achieving 5 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats.
The development stage began with the recruitment of several stars to support the team, such as Eden Hazard from Chelsea, Luca Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt, Edir Militau from Porto, Verland Mendy from Lyon, and Rodrigo from Santos.
Zizo also got rid of some players who came out of his accounts, such as Matteo Kovacic, Marcos Jurente, Theo Hernandez, Sergio Regilon and Keylor Navas.
During the 2019-2020 season, he led the team in 51 matches, winning 33 games, scoring 11 draws, and concluding 7 defeats.
Despite the difficult conditions that the team experienced due to the Corona virus and the suspension of activity, the Real achieved the Spanish Super title at the expense of Atletico Madrid in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, then crowned the League title.
As for the Champions League, Zidane’s battalion left the competition from the round of 16 against Manchester City, as well as they were eliminated from the King’s Cup in the quarter-finals against Real Sociedad.
Real Madrid lived last season, one of its most difficult times, due to the economic crisis that prevented the club from concluding any deals, in addition to the curse of injuries that hit the players and exceeded the barrier of 60 injuries, in addition to Corona infection.
The news of Zidane’s departure was accompanied by every stumbling for the Whites, although he challenged the difficult circumstances and led the team to fight for the La Liga title until the last round with arch-neighbor Atletico Madrid, losing by two points.
Zizou also led the royal team to the semi-finals of the European Champions League, but bid farewell to his favorite championship against Chelsea, a remarkable achievement in light of the circumstances and injuries that hit the team.
Los Blancos deposited the King’s Cup in the round of 32 against Alcoyano, and lost in the Spanish Super Cup semi-finals against Athletic Bilbao.
During the past season 2020-2021, Zidane led Real Madrid in 53 games, achieving 31 victories, 13 draws, and 9 defeats.
