Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has left the team's training camp in Montreal to attend to personal issues.

In a short statement by the club, it was confirmed that the treble Champions League winning manager will be absent for an unspecified period of the trip.

"Our manager Zinedine Zidane will be absent from pre-season training camp because of personal reasons," the statement on Friday read.

"Until his return, the sessions will be led by the second coach, David Bettoni."

Madrid have been in Canada since three days where they have been preparing for their pre-season opener against Bayern Munich in Houston, Texas on July 20 in the International Champions Cup.

The Galacticos will then face Arsenal three days later outside of Washington, D.C. before completing their ICC run against rivals Atletico Madrid on July 26 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
