Zinedine Zidane has finally decided to step down as Real Madrid coach. On Wednesday (May 26) morning, Jiju informed Real Management that the three were no longer there. According to the Spanish newspaper AS, Zidane took a few days to decide his future at Real after failing to win the La Liga title. He has finally decided to leave the club. The French legend won three Champions Leagues and two La Liga titles in the first round, coaching Real. However, taking charge in the second term was not a pleasant one for him.
According to the report, Zidane made the decision after losing the league title to city rivals Atletico Madrid by a narrow margin. Real Madrid finished second in the league, two points behind Atletico. His side have also been knocked out of the Champions League semi-finals and Real have been knocked out of the Copa del Rey. As a result, after 11 years, the most successful team in Europe ended the season without a trophy.
Zidane, the former footballer of the club, left the responsibility of Real for the second time after 2016 to 2021. However, he left in 2016 from the top. This time he left with a little frustration.
Real Madrid has reached the last 16 of the Copa del Rey. Real beat third-tier Unionistas de Salamanca 3-1 in the last-32 match on Wednesday night. The game is held on the opponent’s field.
Real’s two top scorers are Gareth Bale and Brahim Dias.
Although there was not much excitement at the beginning of the game, the game froze after a while. Real got success from the attack in the D-box in the 16th minute. Bell took the shot. It landed on one’s leg, changed direction, got close to the post and got caught in the net.
After that Salamanka hit a counter hit in the 56th minute even though there was no goal for some time. Alvaro Romero scored from a D-box shot.
However, the 1-1 draw did not last long. Suddenly, the Spanish defender Juan Gangora scored a suicide goal.
Young Spanish forward Brahim Dias widened the gap with a goal in the second minute of added time at the very end of the game.
