Asked this Saturday at a press conference on the eve of the match against Bilbao, Zinedine Zidane maintained doubts about his future as coach of Real Madrid. The French technician made a disturbing speech when explaining what he meant by wanting to “make things easy” for the Madrid club.
While rumors about his departure are rife, Zinedine Zidane still does not know what his future will hold. Present at a press conference on Saturday before the match against Athletic Bilbao, the French technician did not really extinguish the spreading fire. Second in Liga, only two units behind Atlético de Madrid, the Merengue will fight for the title until the end. Eliminated at the gates of the final by Chelsea in the Champions League, Zinédine Zidane’s troops took a blow to the head but must keep their heads hanging in the league.
Last week, the former French international refused to react to many speculations about his future on the bench at Real Madrid, however, saying that he would “make things easy for the club” before the draw obtained against Sevilla (2 -2).
“We’re going to finish the season,” the former player of the France team almost gave up. For the rest, what I can say is that I’m going to make things easy for the club, because that the club has always given me everything. “
Words that have caused a lot of ink to flow this week and which journalists have not failed to remind the coach, asking for more precise explanations on this subject.
“It’s time to change”
Zinedine Zidane therefore returned to the words that could have been considered awkward, explaining that the need to change things within the White House was felt on all floors.
“Maybe you think I left because I was relinquishing responsibilities or because things got complicated. Never, nothing like that, Zizou denied. The only thing is that what I do, I do it thoroughly. “And there comes a time when things … It’s time for a change. But for everyone, not just for me. For the good of the players, the club, the people.” […] Things go like this. There are times when you have to be there and there are times when you have to go for the good of all. “
One way to clearly open the door to a departure at the end of the season. Under contract with Real Madrid until June 2022, the French coach is regularly sent to Juventus by the Italian press. One thing is certain, French stirs up envy.
