The president of Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez, appeared with Zinedine Zidane at the press conference in which the French manager announce his departure from the club.
Introduction: "Thanks for your presence. As the president, I am here with Zidane, but he has to be the one to communicate an unexpected decision that he has taken firmly and he has to be the one to say why. I am just by his side."
Surprise: "For me, it was an unexpected decision and it is a sad day for me and for everyone, for the player and for those who work in this club."
Emotional: "I loved him as a player and now as a manager and I want him to always be at my side. But we know Zizou: when he makes a decision, you have to accept it and respect it. It caused a big impact when he told me yesterday. The only thing I can do is offer my love and support."
Caught off-guard: "One can not be prepared for news like this. I rememvber the first time that I visited him in his house to sign him as a player and he was ready to play at Real Madrid and he told me that convincingly.
Farewell: "I want to thank him for his dedication, his passion, his love during these years and his behaviour has always been an example of the values of Real Madrid. More than a gooybye, I would like to say that it's see you soon because he will return. If he needs a break, he deserves it."
