Zinédine Zidane has just denied the information that he had informed his players of his intention to leave.
No, Zinédine Zidane has not expressed to his players his desire to leave Real Madrid at the end of the current season. Contrary to the information unveiled by Onda Cero on Saturday, the French technician has said no such thing to his troops and no one yet knows what he will do next season.
It was Nacho, the hero of the Merengue victory against Bilbao this Sunday on Matchday 37 of La Liga, who was the first to cut the noise behind the scenes. “No, he didn’t tell us he was going to leave”, he thundered.
“We will see what will happen at the end of the season”
Then, it was the main interested party to express themselves and reassure all the socios merengue: “You can’t always talk about my future. How will I be able to tell my players that I am leaving while we are still playing for the La Liga title? At the end of the season, we’ll see what will happen! ”
This has the merit of being clear and also calming speculation for at least an additional week.
It is not certain, however, that the local press will find other topics of discussion in the coming days. We are already starting to talk about the coaches likely to settle on the Bernabeu bench. Massimiliano Allegri and Raul emerge as top favorites
After the victory against the Basques, the Merengue remain in the wake of Atlético and therefore in a position to seek the title. The Madrilenians had even occupied the leading position for a few minutes this Saturday, before their neighbors turned the tide in their match against Osasuna (2-1).
