Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane stunned his players by telling them he will quit the club at the end of the season following their 2-2 draw against Sevilla.

The Spanish giants lost their advantage in the La Liga title race with a costly draw against Sevilla last week, which means rivals Atletico Madrid can win the title with two wins from their final two matches.

Though Real were level on points with Atletico, their superior head-to-head record against their city rivals meant they only needed to match the results of Diego Simeone’s side in the final three matches to win the title.

Zidane quit the club in 2018 after the side’s Champions League final win against Liverpool but he returned 18 months later when Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari were sacked in quick succession.

Zidane was promised a full rebuild of the squad but the pandemic has proved costly to Real, leaving the Frenchman’s grand plans in tatters.

The mental and physical strain of the job has started to show on Zidane this term, with those close to the Frenchman suggesting earlier in the season that this may be his last campaign at the Bernabeu.

And Goal claim that he told his players after last weekend’s draw against Sevilla that he would walk out at the end of the season and does not want to continue as manager.

Zidane could take another break from football but he’s been heavily linked with a return to former club Juventus, where he is still worshiped.

Andrea Pirlo is expected to depart Turin this summer after a torid debut campaign with his former club.

Juventus currently occupy the final Champions League spot in Serie A but rivals Napoli have a game in hand and will finish fourth if they win their remaining three matches.
