Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has announced his resignation from the head coach of Los Blancos. The Frenchman led the Galacticos to their third straight Champions League triumph after beating Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev on Saturday, May 26.

He joined the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the winter of 2016 after taking over from Rafael Benitez after working with the club's Castilla side.

Zidane led the Galacticos to claim the 2016 UCL title after beating their city rivals Atletico Madrid in his first season at the club.

They repeated the feat in his second year following his 4-1 victory over Juventus last year and then beat Liverpool on Saturday to make his third triumph in Europa.

The Frenchman has a running contract with his present club until the summer of 2020, but decided to walk away after the 3-1 victory in Kiev last weekend
