Zinedine Zidane does not intend to let speculation about its future defeat. While he is announced on the departure at the end of the season, the coach of Real Madrid stepped up to dispel doubts.
Zidane denies his departure from Real Madrid
Zinedine Zidane will he still be on the bench for Real Madrid next season? The French coach had openly raised the possibility of a “Change” at one point. ” My future ? I don’t know what’s going to happen. Anything can happen, it’s Real Madrid. My strength is everyday life, I don’t see myself beyond everyday life. I don’t look at the past or the future, all that matters is the present ”, he said last Saturday at a press conference.
An astonishing statement, which revived speculations on its future. For the Spanish press, there is no doubt: Zinedine Zidane will leave at the end of the season. The French coach would have finally decided that this 2020-2021 season would be the last on the bench of Real Madrid and would have even informed the dressing room of the Merengues on this choice. Information quickly denied by the Madrid coach.
“How can I tell my players that I am leaving when we play our life in La Liga?” You can say whatever you want away from home, but I will never say that to my players (…) It’s a lie, I am focusing on this end of the season ”, he assured after the victory of Real Madrid against Bilbao (1-0).
Zidane will have to make a decision at the end of the season
With this precious success against Bilbao, Real Madrid are still alive in the race for the title of La Liga. One day from the end of the championship, the Merengues are two points behind the leader, Atlético Madrid. Reassembled, the players of Zinédine Zidane are determined to win on the last day against Villarreal, while hoping for a misstep from Diego Simeone’s men.
However, the future of Zinédine Zidane on the bench of Real Madrid is not assured. He will have to make a decision at the end of the season. “At the end of the season, we’ll see what happens. I would like people not to constantly talk about my future, that’s not the most important ”, concluded the Madrid coach.
