Reports: Broken Promise Forced Zidane To Quit Real

Reports: Broken Promise Forced Zinedine Zidane To Quit Real Madrid

It has been reported that a broken promise by Real Madrid's board forced French manager Zinedine Zidane to quit the club.

Sterling To Real Madrid?

Many were surprised when the Frenchman announced he was leaving Los Blancos after guiding the team to their third consecutive UEFA Champions League title.

At the time, he said he was walking away as he felt the club needed a change to make sure the team did not become stagnant.

According to Spanish newspaper El Pais, however, Zidane actually decided to leave when he found out the club was not going to sell Gareth Bale.

It has been claimed that the board told Zidane they would get rid of the winger due to his constant injury struggles, but after his wonder goal against Liverpool in the final of the 2017/18 edition of the UCL, they changed their mind.

Zidane was under the impression that he would then be allowed to spend the money the club would have made from selling Bale on a replacement, with Eden Hazard, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane all said to have been on the club's radar until they decided to hang on to Bale.

Zidane subsequently left the Spanish giants as he felt the club had betrayed him, although their relationship appeared to end on a positive note.

Do you think Real should have fought for Zidane to stay? Let us know in the comments section below.

I am also not a big fan of Bale, however, I wouldn't quit Madrid over such a petty matter. Zidane should have stayed and then sign Hazard as the replacement of CR7, by now Madrid would be unstoppable.

Zizo did the right thing to teach these greedy and autocratic bosses that not everything is about them.I hope Chippa United coaches must take a leaf or two from the Frenchman.
