    MADRID — Coach Zinedine Zidane says he is quitting Real Madrid after two-and-a-half seasons with the Spanish club.

    The surprise announcement comes less than a week after Zidane led Madrid to its third straight Champions League title.

    Zidane said on Thursday he felt it was the right moment — for him and for the club — to make a change.

    Zidane won nine titles as Madrid's coach, including the three Champions Leagues, one Spanish League, one Spanish Super Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and two Club World Cups.

    The 45-year-old Zidane was hired in January 2016 for what was his first major head-coaching job. The former star player arrived surrounded by doubts because of his lack of coaching experience but quickly surpassed expectations.
