Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane addresses uncertain future.
Zinedine Zidane did something special while managing the club he used to play for, winning three straight UEFA Champions Leagues in a row. He departed after that but a dry run with other managers saw Real Madrid bring the talisman right back to the Santiago Bernabeu. Since returning, he delivered yet again as he won the La Liga coming back from behind to beat Ernesto Valverde and Quique Setien’s Barcelona. However, he failed to deliver in the Champions League after his return as Manchester City‘s Pep Guardiola got the better of him tactically in a nail-biting tie which ended 4-2 in the favor of the Centurions.
As of now, Zidane has made a few comments on his stay at Real Madrid and whether he will be staying for a long term period or not. The Real Madrid boss stated that “it takes a lot out of you” implying the mental and physical drainage that his job as the boss of Real Madrid causes. However, he has stated that it’s worth it and he will do it as long as he is needed or required. The Frenchman however did not guarantee a long-term future verbally. The former Juventus footballer was not sure if he is going to continue to be the Los Blancos coach for a longer duration.
The Frenchman currently has 18 months left on his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu. He was asked about his long term future before Real Madrid’s game against Celta Vigo. A four-year anniversary for him as Real Madrid boss is coming up for the 48-year-old hence it was the perfect time to get some comments from the man himself on his future at the club. The three-time UEFA Champions League winner was asked if there was going to be another four years run at the club or not. However, the former attacking midfielder remains unsure of his position.
Zinedine Zidane has been an absolute talisman for Real Madrid as only success has followed him since his arrival at the Bernabeu. He is a fan favorite, the players seem to work very well under him and the board has complete trust in the coach.
