"I have taken the decision to not continue next year as Real Madrid coach", the Frenchman told a hastily convened press conference, before adding he was not looking for another club to coach.

"After winning a European Cup it is an unexpected decision", club president Florentino Perez commented.

"It's a unusual moment to do so, I know, but an important one too", he said.

Defender Achraf Hakimi wrote, "Eternally grateful for your trust, manager and for being that person who allowed me to complete my dream of playing for Real Madrid's first team". Today I need to change, for me, for everyone, for this, I've taken the decision.

"This is a odd moment but a very important moment", Zidane said. "All I can offer is my love and respect and remind him that this is his home".

Zidane spoke little about his future but said he is not immediately looking to coach another club. After three years, it's what I have chose to do.

Zidane said his association with Madrid may not be at an end.

However, the timing of his announcement still came as a shock just days after Real beat Liverpool 3-1 in the Champions League final.
