Former president of Real Madrid, Calderón reveals how Ronaldo and Bale made Zidane resign

A former president of Real Madrid, Ramón Calderón, blamed Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale for the sudden resignation of coach Zidane.

Calderón said Ronaldo's decision to flirt with an idea of ​​Manchester United's return was behind Zidane's decision to step down as manager.

Leave the holders of the Champions League facing a great summer ahead, with the future of Ronaldo also as a source of much discussion.

Reports in Spain suggest that Ronaldo is determined to join Manchester United, tired of Florentino Perez's refusal to give him a new contract.

Calderón thinks that Ronaldo's decision to open the door for United's return was too much for Zidane.

He told LoveSport Radio: "I had some disagreements with the president during the season.

"First of all with the goalkeeper, the president wanted to sign the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper and he told me that my goalkeeper is Keylor Navas.

"Then there was talk of Lewandowski, but we know that he likes Benzema.

"And now the problems with Ronaldo and Bale - it's really a shame, because I like Cristiano and it took me a lot of work to bring him to Real Madrid - but it was not the right time to say what he said and the way he said it.

"I knew I was going to have problems with Bale and Ronaldo.

"That is a problem we will have in the coming weeks, and perhaps that is something he has considered when making his decision."

Calderón also believes that Perez has already decided on Zidane's successor.

"Knowing him [Florentino Pérez], well, I think he knew a few weeks ago that Zidane would leave and he has already made a decision about the new coach," he added.

"I do not know who he will be, but he will know and have been in contact with someone."

"We know that he [Pérez] offered the position of manager to Wenger a few years ago, but I do not know if he feels the same now.

"It is also known that he offered the position to [Joachim] Low, the coach of the German national team."
