Zinedine Zidane revealed on Monday his reasons for leaving Real Madrid saying he feels the club no longer has faith in him to rebuild the team.
Zidane made a return to the Bernabau in March 2019, won two La Liga titles and three Champions League titles during his two stints.
However he stepped down from his position as head coach for the Los Blancos last week after thry failed to win a single title for the first time in 11 years.
Reports according to Sky Sports Italia suggests Real Madrid could go in for Antonio Conte as Zidane’s replacement after missing out Allegri.
In an open letter published by Spanish outlet AS, Zidane stated that he resigned for the first time because hen felt the team needed a new approach to stay at the top after enjoying so much success.
“Right now, things are different. I feel the club no longer has the faith in me I need nor the support to build something in the medium or long term,” he said.
Zidane was also disappointed at how his relationship with the club president had been in recent weeks especially after series of leaks and stories broke out about his future coming from within Real Madrid.
“I would have liked my relationship with the club and the president over the past few months to have been a little different to that of other coaches.
“I wasn’t asking for privileges, of course not, just a little more recollection.
“It hurt me so much when I read in the press, after a defeat, that I would be sacked if I didn’t win the next game.
“It hurt me and the whole team beacuse these deliberately leaked messages to the media negatively influenced the squad, they created doubts and misunderstandings.”
