May JohnsonMay 31, 2018

"This team needs a change after three years".

The players have nothing to do with my decision, it is about what I think.

.

Real President Florentino Pérez admitted his surprise at Zidane's decision just five days after their historic Champions League success.

"I love this club", he added. If I don't think that we can keep winning then it's time.

"It's my decision", he said.

"There are hard moments when you can wonder whether you are the right person still", he said. "After three years I need another discourse, another method of working", he told a hastily convened press conference.

The remaining $75 million will be held in reserve in the event future lawsuits are filed against the university over Nassar. Nassar's assaults were mostly committed in MI at his Lansing-area home , campus clinic and area gyms.

Zinedine Zidane shocked the footballing world on Thursday by sensationally announcing his decision to leave Real Madrid. "This is the right moment for all involved - for me, for the squad, for the club". "I am not going to coach another team [right away]". He also revealed recently he was approached several times by the Spanish side during his time in London.

Zidane spoke little about his future but said he is not immediately looking to coach another club.

Zidane quit on Thursday after winning three Champions League titles in a row, while Arsene Wenger called time on his career at Arsenal after 22 years a few weeks ago. "It was the greatest thing", the Frenchman said. He's linked to the Chelsea job and that might prove to be too good to turn down but they don't play in the Champions League this year and it is not as illustrious a post as it once was.

Zidane has now won nine trophies since replacing Rafael Benitez in the Santiago Bernabeu dugout in January 2016. The former star player arrived surrounded by doubts because of his lack of coaching experience but quickly surpassed expectations.

Karembeu, who started alongside Zidane in the 1998 World Cup final, knows full well the pressure of Real Madrid. The win was his third European title. In the 2006 final, he was sent off for headbutting Italy defender Marco Materazzi.

The 45-year-old former global chose to quit at the top saying that it was time for a change for himself and the club and admitting he was unsure of his ability to maintain his winning record at Real.
