This time the love story between Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid are coming to an end. According to the Spanish press, an official announcement of the departure of the Madrid coach should fall in the coming hours.
Real Madrid: Announcement imminent for Zidane?
“So far he’s been a Real Madrid coach, hasn’t he? I don’t see him leaving. He’s not going to leave, you’ll see. If he leaves, he leaves … But for now, I don’t see Real without Zidane ”, said Karim Benzema recently in an interview with The team. If the French striker is very optimistic for the continuity of his coach on the Madrid bench, he will still have to be right: the Madrid coach is approaching the exit door.
According to information from TeleMadrid, Zinedine Zidane would have taken the “Irrevocable decision” to leave Real Madrid. The Catalan daily specifies that this decision would be motivated by “physical and mental wear and tear”. The French technician would like to leave Real Madrid this summer and have already communicated his decision to his leaders. Besides, the journalist Siro Lopez, always well informed about the White House, goes further by ensuring that the date of Zidane’s departure has been set internally. The journalist understands that Real Madrid and Zinédine Zidane will announce the end of their collaboration by next week.
Real Madrid: Zizou’s successor already found
Everything indicates that the 48-year-old technician will be leaving Real Madrid, except for a huge last-minute turnaround. This time, President Florentino Pérez was not caught off guard and has reportedly already appointed his successor. Free since his departure from Juventus Turin, Massimiliano Allegri would have the favors of the leaders of Real Madrid to succeed Zidane. As for the current coach of Real, his name circulates with insistence on the side of Juve, where Andrea Pirlo is in an ejection seat. In Piedmont, he could find his former striker, Cristiano Ronaldo.
