Present at a press conference this Friday, Zinédine Zidane did not escape questions about his future. The Real Madrid coach has not ruled out a departure at the end of the season.
Real Madrid: Zinédine Zidane still uncertain
The season is not over yet for Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid. The Merengues are still in the race for the title of Liga champion and have a final match to play this Saturday from 6 p.m. against Villarreal. This decisive meeting will perhaps be the last game for the French coach on the Madrid bench.
Present at the pre-match conference, Zinedine Zidane was asked about this possibility. Will Zizou leave at the end of the season? The Madrid coach was not born overnight and perfectly dodged the question. “We’re going to play tomorrow, that’s the most important thing. We have time to talk about it. This is not the moment. We must put all the energy into that of tomorrow. After 37 days, we are not going to waste time talking about next year ”, he replied. The current Real Madrid coach has therefore not reversed or confirmed his departure at the end of the season, preferring to maintain the suspense until the end.
Zidane speaks out on Benzema’s return to the Blues
For now, the Merengue coach remains focused on the last game of the season. The Merengues are determined to win against the yellow submarine, while hoping for a misstep from the leader, Atlético de Madrid. In addition, Zinédine Zidane did not hide his satisfaction with the great return of Karim Benzema to the France team. After five and a half years of absence, the Real Madrid striker has been summoned by coach Didier Deschamps in preparation for Euro 2021.
“I am very happy that Karim is back. It was what he wanted and I am very happy for him. He’s always done great things on the pitch. I hope we will all enjoy his football and above all I am very happy for him ”, he rejoiced.
