      Crazy isn't it?

      I guess there's nothing like going out on top. I wonder if the possibility of that team losing it's biggest names has him wondering whether he wants to deal with "rebuilding" (should Bale and Ronaldo bolt) or does he not like working with such big egos?

      Apparently he was close to signing a new contract and when asked if he would have stayed had they lost the final, he seems to have said "I don't know, maybe."

      He actually signed a new deal and when questioned he said it means nothing..I think he realised that winning 3 in a row will never be repeated by another manager at the club, has an ageing squad with most players 30+, struggled in the league, so better I go out on his terms that being another sacking stat by Perez.

      Yeah, mate. I think this is a great decision. Better go out on a high and his legacy is already sealed. If somebody is going to look back after 30 years, they will probably think Zidane was some legendary manager.

      Got bored of winning the Champions League.. ?

      I know winning is winning, but there's got to be something pitiful about having a team full of stars, and loaded with money, so winning is just so standard. Even with that.. the league stats were awful. Where's the tactical genius?

      He's lucky Ramos assassinated Salah. There were already rumblings about him, so he may not have survived the loss.

      Now he gets to walk and will be considered the greatest manager..

      Interesting to see who replaces him now. So long as Bale and Ronaldo stay (i.e. so neither go to Utd) then I really don't care.

      Rafa was bought in to bring in fresh blood, but an agenda from the off was in place against Rafa...Perez wanted a complete rebuild & get shot of the vocal players in the dressing room...Perez bottled it and sacked Rafa & save himself, 3 CL & 1 title since will be a heavy price for Madrid & Perez to pay for not moving on players...

      Don't think he ever claimed to be a tactical genius though. His strengths are in man management, he commands respect because of what he achieved as a player and at the time it was the perfect fit for Madrid.

      He doesn't strike me as someone who'll have an extensive managerial career. I remember reading something about him only wanting to manage Madrid and France. In terms of the former there's nothing left for him to achieve.

      I doubt many top managers will want the job after they've won 3 CL's on the bounce with an ageing squad.

      You don't half say some daft sh*te you

      I bet any top manager (without major Barca links) would take that job at the drop of a hat

      Be careful, Jürgen is top of their wish list apparently.
      In all seriousness I disagree, I think top managers like the chance to be the hero, to come in and give a club that little bit extra to make them successful, but with Real Madrid how much better can it get? They regularly win  La Liga and have won the CL 3 years on the bounce playing attractive football, there really is not that much scope for instant improvement whilst there is plenty of scope for disappointment with agitations from Bale and Ronaldo and a squad getting older.

      Damn, I was hoping Griezmann's announcement was about joining us :D

      Anyway, really happy to see him reject Barca to stay at Atletico, and hopefully, other top players will follow suit.

      Edit: Sh*t, apparently getting 23m a year, no wonder he rejected Barca :o

      They did, and even last season they didn't look good, still can't believe we lost to them.

      We would have won easily with the team we have now and if that cuntish thug Ramos hadn't taken out Mo.

      We would have won then too.

      Checked the score and saw Real Madrid were leading through Ramos.. and thought the worst. Imagine him with the headlines again. Delighted to see Atletico come back, and then destroy them in ET.  ;D

      I thought it was a very entertaining game for a glorified friendly, Real mid-field is so strong and great in possession but Athletico who always defend well kept hanging around long enough to find a tying goals then extra time they had it in the bag. I thought when they brought on Vitolo it really changed the game and early look on what we missed out in Lemar, very quick and has lots of energy but wasn't very effective though he will need time to gel into the system.

      Madrid seem like they haven’t a clue what to do with their team now Ronaldo has gone. They’ve lost the appeal they once had.
