'Your legacy will never be erased': captain Sergio Ramos says after Zinedine Zidane quit Madrid

Tributes have started to pour in after Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane decided to quit his role at the club in what is a sensational twist at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Zidane led the Spanish giants to a historic third consecutive Champions League triumph on Saturday but decided to step down on Thursday.

The Frenchman called a shock press conference where he announced he was departing much to the surprise of players, journalists and fans.

Sergio Ramos, who spoke to Zidane on the phone about the Frenchman's resignation, led the tributes by taking to social media after the press conference.

He wrote on Twitter: 'As a player and coach you decided to say goodbye at the top. Thank you for two-and-a-half incredible years.

Your legacy will never be erased, one of the most successful chapters in the history of our beloved @realmadrid.'

Vice-captain Marcelo echoed his team-mate's words by thanking Zidane in an emotional post in Spanish.

He wrote: 'Mr. Zizou.

I learned a lot by your side! I have enjoyed as a child every workout, every advice! You're very special to me! You have made history with your work, your dedication, passion and especially with your humility! Thank you Mister.'

German midfielder Toni Kroos decided to keep his message short and simple by tweeting: 'Gracias Mister! It's been a pleasure!'

Isco, who was given the nod by Zidane to start the Champions League final ahead of Gareth Bale, wrote: 'It has been an honour to work with you, to learn every day and to win all together because you have managed to make this team something historic... I wish you the best.'
