Zinedine Zidane has stated that he resigned as Real Madrid manager because he felt the club “no longer had faith” in him.
The Frenchman left the La Liga club for a second time in his coaching career on 27 May after they failed to win a trophy during the 2020-21 season.
The Frenchman stated this in a letter to the fans published in the sports daily AS.
“I’m leaving because I feel the club no longer has the faith in me I need and doesn’t offer me the support to build something in the medium or long term.

“I am a born winner and I was here to win trophies, but beyond this there are human beings, emotions, life and I have the feeling that these things have not been valued, that it has not been understood that this is also how the dynamic of a great club is maintained,” he said.
“But everything I built on a daily basis, what I brought to the relationship with the players… has been forgotten.”
“I’m going, but I’m not jumping overboard, nor am I tired of coaching,” said the 48-year-old.
