Zidane Comments On Real Future

An under-pressure Zinedine Zidane has commented on his future at Real Madrid, insisting that his achievements as a player do not give him any protection from being dismissed by the club.

Zidane 'Angry' After Real Drop More Points

The Frenchman, who has guided Los Blancos to two UEFA Champions League titles and a La Liga trophy among other pieces of silverware, has seen his side struggle for consistency this season, and he has now admitted that he knows his time at Real is limited.

"Zinedine Zidane isn't a player at Real Madrid anymore. That Zidane no longer exists," the French tactician told France Football.

"Now it's down to Zinedine Zidane the coach to carve out a career. I'm not protected by what I've done as a player at this club.

"I know that one day it (the coach's job) will come to an end at Real Madrid, so I make the most of it, and I do everything I can to be successful.

"I say to myself, 'If I've got 10 days left here, then I'm going to live those 10 days to the max; if it's six months, I'll live those six months to the max'. I don't think beyond that.

"I know I won't stay (in the job) for 10 years."

The Highest Spending Clubs In A Single Season

Los Blancos have won only one of their past four league games, and find themselves in fourth place in La Liga.
