Zinedine Zidane probably put an end to his adventure in real Madrid. The French coach has decided to leave the Madrid club of his own free will this summer and his successor would already be known internally.
Real Madrid: the announcement of Zidane’s departure soon formalized
” My future ? The most important thing today is the team, not me. I’ll speak with the club and we’ll see. Later, when the time is right, I will talk, calmly, with the club ”, declared Zinédine Zidane, last Saturday, at the end of the season in La Liga. While he has remained rather evasive about his future, the French technician has repeatedly hinted that he cannot see himself staying on the bench at Real Madrid for several more seasons due to the pressure. Worn out by all the Madrid media environment, he would then have decided to put an end to his adventure in Madrid.
“Zinédine Zidane has taken the decision to leave Real Madrid with immediate effect”, announced the daily AS. The French coach communicated his decision to his management and then warned his players of his choice, thanking them for their involvement during this complicated season. If we have to wait a few more hours for his departure to become official, the Madrid management wasted no time in finding his replacement.
Allegri, Zidane’s future successor at Real Madrid?
It must be said that the departure of Zinedine Zidane is not much of a surprise for Real Madrid. For several weeks, the Merengues leaders had already been working on his succession. And according to the Madrid daily, the choice of Madrid leaders would fall on Massimiliano Allegri to succeed Zidane.
Free since his departure from Juventus Turin in 2019, the Italian coach has always been considered the big favorite to succeed the Frenchman. And if the name of Raul Gonzalez, who currently runs Castilla, was mentioned, the experience and patience of the Italian weighed in the balance. Massimiliano Allegri declined several proposals this summer in the hope of one day taking the reins of the Madrid bench. A wish well on the way to being fulfilled.
