Pérez added: "This was a totally unexpected decision, Zidane informed me of his choice yesterday". I wanted him to stay forever and I wanted to convince him to stay.

Speculation quickly turned to who will succeed him at the Santiago Bernabeu, with World Cup-winning Germany coach Low among those touted as potential replacements. "I know that he was offered that position many times by the current President".

Zidane spoke little about his future but said he is not immediately looking to coach another club.
