After Real Madrid’s victory in Bilbao on Sunday in La Liga Matchday 37, Zinedine Zidane responded firmly to information from the Spanish press on his future.
Zinedine Zidane is not in the mood for rumors. After the victory of his Real Madrid this Sunday, as part of the penultimate day of La Liga, the French technician has not escaped the question around his future. Almost a classic in recent months. But on Saturday, the Spanish press turned a corner, assuring that Zizou had already announced to his locker room his departure at the end of the season.
“How can I tell the players now that I’m leaving? We’re playing our lives and I would say I’m leaving? That’s lying on every level. You can say whatever you want, I’ll never say that to my players. We’ll see at the end of the season but for now I’m here and we have one game left, “Zinedine Zidane said to the press.
Another title chance
In short: this is not the time. Even if the Madrid media have been advancing for months that the world champion is closer to the exit than to a new season in the skin of coach of Real, after a checkered season.
The fight for the title of champion of Spain is completely crazy, with a storyline worthy of a Netflix series. This Sunday, Atlético came close to the worst but won in the last minutes, with a goal from Luis Suarez against Osasuna (2-1). One last day remains. Next Sunday, the White House will receive Villarreal to hope to cap the Colchoneros at the post.
