Tense Zidane Casts More Doubt Over Real Future

After seeing his side draw 2-2 with second-tier Numancia in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane cast more doubt over his future with the Spanish giants.

Los Blancos, who have won just once in their past four outings, progressed to the next round of the cup competition courtesy of an impressive 3-0 victory in the first leg.

After the match, Zidane admitted that he is in a vulnerable position, and that his contract "means nothing" if the team continues with its struggles.

"I just go game to game, year to year," the French tactician said, as quoted by FourFourTwo

"I cannot think two or three years down the line as I know how it is here, even having a contract, which means nothing.

"It is not easy for the players who play less. We played a good game. We maybe lacked a bit of gas at the end."

The Frenchman decided to rest quite a few of his first team stars for the midweek fixture, and despite the team's failure to win the encounter, he claimed he was satisfied with the effort his young side put in.

"I am happy with what the players did," Zidane added.

"The pity is the goal before half-time, and also a goal at the end. But apart from that, we had a good game, and they did what they had to do.

"For me, we are recovering things and we will (recover) with my players and staying relaxed, without problems.

"All the questions, things you think about bad play or whatever, it could be. But we are convinced we will move forward.

"I am happy with those who played. I am satisfied across the two games, and the players are too."

Los Blancos are currently fourth in LaLiga, and are a whopping 16 points behind arch-rivals FC Barcelona, who are sitting at the top.
