Zinedine Zidane stunned the football world on Thursday by announcing he’s stepping down as Real Madrid boss.

The Frenchman leaves after guiding los Blancos to three consecutive Champions League wins but what he said as he announced his departure will come as a surprise.

Zidane reckons the highlight of his time at the Santiago Bernabeu wasn’t his success in Europe, but instead the sole La Liga title he claimed.

Interestingly Zidane also said his worst moment as Madrid boss was the Copa del Rey defeat at Leganes.

Zidane joined Real Madrid in January 2016 and leaves after also winning two Club World Cups, two UEFA Super Cups and the Spanish Super Cup.

However, Madrid finished a massive 17 points behind Barcelona in La Liga season and Zidane also said he felt “It would have been difficult for me to win again next year.”
