Zidane left Madrid due to Ronaldo sale

Real Madrid are considered to have big lost, because last summer they lost one of the best managers they have ever had, Zinedine Zidane. Although not revealing the reasons behind his decision to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, but former President of Real Madrid, Ramon Calderon believes the club’s decision to sell Ronaldo is one of the main reasons.

As is known, Real Madrid has been handled by Zidane since the club fired Rafael Benitez, precisely in January 2016 then. At first many doubted Zidane’s capacity as a coach, given the lack of experience of the French legend in the managerial world. But who would have thought, it would only take half a season for the French manager to lead Real Madrid to win the European Champions League in the 2015/16 season, its success continued in the 2016/17 season and 2017/18 season, with the European Champions League hat-trick won by the entrenador.

The achievement made by Zidane regarded as one of the best coaches in the history of the club, because in fact there was no team before in the history of the European Champions League, which won three European Champions League titles in a row. It is estimated that it will last a long time at Real Madrid, but the fact is Zidane chose to resign from the post a day after delivering the Los Blancos to win the 3rd European Champions League title.

The surprising decision gave rise to a variety of speculations about the reasons behind it, there were those who thought that there was no agreement between Zidane and President Florentino Perez. But the former President of Real Madrid, Ramon Calderon mentioned that Zidane’s decision was related to the club’s decision to sell Cristiano Ronaldo and defend Gareth Bale, where the manager actually wanted the opposite. Because of that, in Calderon’s view, Zidane had indeed made the right decision by leaving Real Madrid.

“Zidane insisted on defending Cristiano and selling Bale. But Perez did the opposite. Zidane actually wanted to have the power to bring in or sell players, but his advice was ignored, so he chose to leave. Zidane has made the right decision, “Calderon told the US website.

Meanwhile, after officially leaving Real Madrid, Zidane had been linked with a number of clubs, such as Juventus, Manchester United, to Chelsea, but the fact is that until now he still hasn’t handled any teams.
