Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane left the club after winning the third straight Champions League title last Saturday. The players shared their thoughts on Zidane’s departure on Social Media.

“Coach, as a player and now as our coach you decided to leave while you were on top. Thanks for these two years of football, work, love and friendship. You’re leaving but your legacy is there to stay. One of the most successful chapters in the history of our dear Real Madrid,” wrote Ramos.

“Coach, with you we learned, we grew up and we achieved what appeared to be impossible. You leave on top. Thank you in behalf of every Real Madrid fan,” tweeted Marcos Llorente.

“Zidane, working with you has been a great privilege. Learning every day and then winning all together because you managed to make this a historic team. I wish you all the best,” wrote Isco.

“I can’t find the right words to thank you for what you did for this dressing room, for Real Madrid and for the whole madridismo. It’s been an honor and a privilege having my idol coaching me. Zizou forever.”

“I just want to say thank you for these two years you spent as our coach. You’ve been an amazing pro just like all your coaching staff. I learned a lot as a player and also as a person while being at your disposal. I wish you all the best and once again #GraciasZidane #GraciasZizou.”

“Thank you coach for all you allowed me to experience these two years. Your dedication towards your players and the club was always the most important thing for you and that’s why you’re a role model for us. Thank you for everything and good luck in the future!”

“Coach Zizou: I learned a lot by your side! I enjoyed like a kid every single training session and every piece of advice. You’re very special for me! You made history with your work, your dedication your passion and also your modesty! Thank you mister!”

“it’s been a real pleasure playing for you, coach. You were a legend as a player and now you’re one as a coach too. It’s been a great honor learning from you and winning by your side. I wish you the very best. Thank you and see you soon.”
