ZINEDINE ZIDANE has quit Real Madrid with immediate effect, according to reports.
The Frenchman, 48, returned for his second spell in charge at the Bernabeu in March 2019.
But journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted on Wednesday night he had decided to walk away once again.
Los Blancos endured a difficult season this term. They were pipped to the LaLiga title by city-rivals Atletico by two points.
Real suffered a shock early exit from the Copa del Rey at the hands of third–tier Alcoyano.
The former midfielder did win the league title in 2019-20 to add to his one LaLiga, three Champions Leagues and two Club World Cups from his first spell.
The shock news of Zidane’s exit compounds a bad day for Real Madrid after their Bernabeu stadium was pictured on fire.
Billows of smoke rose out of the ground which is currently undergoing a £500million redevelopment.
