Zidane quits Real Madrid

"After three Champions Leagues in a row, and titles he chose to leave".

From Almudena Cathedral to Plaza de Cibeles, watch Real Madrid make their way around the Spanish capital after their latest UCL triumph. He has signed a new five-year deal at Spurs and Daniel Levy is notoriously hard to deal with as Real Madrid know too well, after the struggle in 2013 to bring Gareth Bale to the club. He knows there is always an appetite for him to return, that the bridge hasn't been burned. What, for example, does this mean for Gareth Bale's future?

Zidane has moved on and Ronaldo has yet to decide on his next move with the club.

Zinedine Zidane has reportedly chose to stand down as Real Madrid manager after leading the club to three Champions League titles in two-and-a-half seasons in charge.

"It can be a "see you later", Madrid has given me everything, I will be close to this club all my life". And I had to do this for everyone.

Zidane felt he had to step down so that "this team must continue winning".

"This is a very hard and demanding club; I always said it is like a grinder, it is very exhausting to be there". The team needs another methodology and that is why I have made this decision. "I'm eternally grateful to him but today for me and for everyone we have to change". There were tough moments during the season and although I was sometimes whistled at, I want to thank the fans. I thank you all for your support and there are hard times when there are whistles but that is part of this club. I want to thank them because it's they who fight on the pitch. This is a demanding club, not easy for them, with this great history. I'm not looking for another team. He also revealed recently he was approached several times by the Spanish side during his time in London. I do not forget that.

Hungary's pressure leads Soros groups to pack up
The Open Society Foundations project was started in 1979, with the first non-US foundation opening in Hungary in 1984. Soros has remarked that the Hungarian government was attempting to slander him by pushing "distortions and lies".

"You have to know when to quit", he said. "This is my first job as a manager but I've been working towards this for a long time". As one of the most promising young managers in the world, it's only natural that Madrid would be interested, but can the prise him from White Hart Lane?

"There are many reasons for this". After three years, it's what I have chose to do. But it is the moment to [leave] here. I think it's the right time.

"This was a totally unexpected decision", Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said. We take a look at a few of the contenders. "Zidane informed me of his choice yesterday".

"Madrid has given me everything".

Zidane took over in 2016, after Rafael Benitez's sacking, and he has won the Champions League in each of his season's at the Bernabeu. Perez also didn't talk much about the club's search for a new coach.

During his five-year playing career at Madrid between 2001 and 2006, Zidane won the Champions League in 2002 and La Liga in 2003.
