Zidane dismisses talks about his future: ‘I’m here and I’m the coach of Real Madrid’

Zinedine Zidane has dismissed questions regarding his future at Real Madrid. The French coach and his team were knocked out of the Champions League on Friday by Manchester City. After the game reporters asked Zidane if he was considering his future at the club.

“Well, I’m here, I’m Madrid’s coach until something happens which is out of the ordinary. I’m here, of course,” he told a news conference. “You don’t have to think anything. I am the coach of Madrid, and that’s it. There are no more questions to ask in this regard. Now we are all going to rest and we will return to have a great season.”

“We need to be proud. I’m certainly very proud of what we’ve achieved,” he added. “We can’t, when we lose, be happy. The players aren’t happy, for sure. But what we can be proud of is that we have had a great season.”

“The key today was to give everything on the pitch and that’s what we did, we were just missing a little something, I don’t know what. I think we’ve still got to be happy with the season. We will see what will happen next season. For now, we rest a little.”
