According to Sport, Zidane only told one Madrid player in person that he would be departing, and the player was his captain, Sergio Ramos.
He, however, informed the rest of the team of his exit via an emotional WhatsApp message.
In his message, Zidane reportedly told his players:
“Thanks for everything. Without your support in the hardest moments, none of what we have achieved would have been possible.
“We’ll meet again soon, a hug.”
It’s claimed that all of his Madrid players responded, except one: Gareth Bale.
