” I am not Staying at Madrid for a Decade” – Zinedine Zidane
Despite leading the club to two UCL titles and a La Liga, the club legend is under some pressure.
Los Blancos sits 16 points behind Barcelona after 17 games, and Zidane understands if his days are numbered.
“Zinedine Zidane isn’t a player at Real Madrid anymore. That Zidane no longer exists,” he 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.”
