Real Madrid assistant coach, Zinedine Zidane, has confirmed he will stay at Bernabeu next season.
The 1998 World Cup winner, who excelled as a player at the Los Blancos, is currently Carlo Ancelotti's assistant and technical advisor to the Madrid board.
The French legend has been linked with French clubs recently but may also take over from Carlo Ancelotti when the Italians contract expires in 2016.
Zidane has now again dismissed any such rumours and told Spanish La Sexta he will be staying at the Los Blancos.
"I'm here and I'm staying at Real Madrid for the time being. We'll see what happens,” he said.
"I like being in the dugout and coaching, but it's not a patch on playing. Being a coach is tough work; it's easier being out there on the pitch.”
Zidane was amongst legends such as Luis Figo, Fernando Hierro and Javier Zanetti to play the ‘Corazon Classic Match’ on Sunday and showed that he can still shine.
"My shape? I'm not in shape anymore. It's really difficult to keep pace in a match.”
On personal level, Zidane won the FIFA World Player of the Year three times and the Ballon d'Or once, and many of the current Real players heaped praises on Zidane's involvement in the coaching set-up at Bernabeu.
