Zinedine Zidane has called time on his second spell as Real Madrid manager, one of the club’s most iconic figures stepping down from his position at the Bernabeu.
Zidane returned to Real Madrid as head coach in 2016 and – a brief break aside – has brought a wealth of success to the Spanish giants, winning two league titles and lifting the Champions League on three occasions.
Those feats are enough to cement the Frenchman into the club’s history, though Zidane already possessed a special place in the affections of Madridistas following a playing carer that saw him sparkle majestically as the best of a generation.
Zidane signed for Real in a world-record deal from Juventus and was the lead figure in the first Galactico era in the capital, ending his debut season with one sensational swing of his left boot to volley home an iconic Champions League final winner.
That moment was one of several stunning moments of magic Zidane created in the colours of world football’s most glamourous club, an unforgettable figure in the Spaniard’s modern history.
Here are Zinedine Zidane’s silkiest and most sublime moments for Real Madrid.
