Zinedine Zidane parted ways with Real Madrid for the second time after the recently concluded league season despite having one more year on his deal.
The Frenchman's decision has left Los Blancos on May 27 with no explanation for his action after his achievements at the club.
Zidane has now revealed that he quit his role as Real's head coach, says he no longer feels valued at the Santiago Bernabeu.
"I'm going, but I'm not jumping overboard, nor am I tired of coaching. I'm leaving because I feel the club no longer has the faith in me I need, nor the support to build something in the medium or long term.
"I understand football and I know the demands of a club like Real Madrid. I know when you don't win, you have to leave.
"I'm a natural-born winner and I was here to win trophies, but even more important than this are the people, their feelings, life itself and I have the sensation these things have not been taken into account.
"There has been a failure to understand that these things also keep the dynamics of a great club going. To some extent I have even been rebuked for it."
Despite his less glamorous second spell, Zidane won the La Liga title for Real before leaving at the end of the 2020-21 season.
