As soon as Zinedine Zidane’s departure was announced, the Madrid players posted messages on social networks to pay tribute to ZZ.
This time, the Madrid players had to face the facts. Until Zinedine Zidane announced his departure on Tuesday, the Real Madrid squad seemed to refuse to consider the French coach’s departure. ” So far, he’s been a Real coach, hasn’t he? I don’t see him leaving. He’s not going to leave, you’ll see. If he leaves, he leaves… But for now, I don’t see Real without Zidane », Had confided Karim Benzema. And the tone was the same in Toni Kross’s mouth. ” I believe Zidane will continue. If I am well informed, I think he has one year left in the contract and I think he will do it. “, Assured the German midfielder.

Since my arrival in Madrid 10 years ago, you have been more than just a coach, a mentor. You helped me develop as a player and as a man. You have been able to lead this golden generation to the top with class (and several times!). I cannot thank you enough for all the advice you have given me, both on and off the pitch. Thanks again, Boss! Good luck and see you soon!“, Wrote Raphaël Varane.

See you… “, wrote the Frenchman, who took care to accompany his publication with a few well-chosen hashtags: #legend, #king.
