Zidane was a phenomenal player for Real Madrid, winning La Liga and Champions League trophies with the club.
The 46-year-old called a surprise press conference at Madrid's Valdebebas training ground on Thursday before confirming his exit from the club. We take a look at a few of the contenders.
Speaking about his decision to quit Real, Zidane said, "I spoke to him [Perez] to explain a little what I was thinking at the moment".
"After three years, (the club) needs a change in speech, a new work methodology", he said. Zidane claimed an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League title when Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday, capping a remarkable period in his first job in senior club management. I did not know, maybe secretly he knew because he wanted to make it happen with Mr. Perez, not with us.
"I had the respect of all, above all the players, which has been fundamental in achieving things". I thank you all for your support and there are hard times when there are whistles but that is part of this club.
Ramos' Madrid team-mates also paid tribute on social media to Zidane with many calling it a pleasure to have been coached by their idol.

Zidane oversaw Real's 2016-17 success in La Liga, but failed to win the league either side of that triumph. He spoke of a decision made for the best of the club and made as a reaction to the exhaustion but he contradicted himself saying: 'I am not exhausted of coaching. I think it would be hard to keep winning if I stayed. I think it's also a clever decision as it's good timing with these titles. In the very next year, Zidane upped the ante with another European Cup victory against the mighty Italian side Juventus.
