Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema admits he's disappointed with Zinedine Zidane's resignation.
Benzema was convinced Zidane would stay, stating so publicly before the coach walked away.
He told Marca: "es, of course, it was a surprise for everyone, not only for me. But certainly, he has always been like a big brother to me. Because I have known him for a long time and he has helped me both on and off the pitch. It was a difficult decision for everyone. Now we have another coach and we are going to try to be successful again."
On Carlo Ancelotti's return, Benzema added: "It is good news, we know him well, players and fans. He is a great coach. I like his philosophy, how he sees football, how he manages the group and how he leads the team. And he wants to win all the titles."
