Real Madrid coach Zidane raises fresh doubts about his future

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has raised fresh doubts about his future.

Real Madrid put in an impressive display against Granada on Thursday which keeps them in the LaLiga Santander title race, but a big test awaits at Estadio San Mames on Sunday against Athletic Club.

Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press on Saturday about the upcoming game and his side's chances of winning the title.

The Frenchman mentioned his pride regarding the team's efforts in a difficult season.

"Today I am more proud because we have had many difficulties, that is why I might be more proud [than ever] this year," he said.

Zidane was then asked about his future, for which he gave an interesting response.

"This question is very boring. The truth is that there are two games left. I do not know what will happen," he said.

"Anything can happen. This is Real Madrid. I do not see myself beyond the day to day. You might think that I say it to take away responsibility because things are getting complicated. It is not like that. I do what I do, and I do it to the fullest.

"There comes a time when you need a change because it is good for everyone. There are times when you have to stay and other times when you have to leave for the good of everyone."

In the meantime, Zidane is just living in the moment.

"I am as I have always been, because I do not know what will happen in two or three years," he said.

"I am delighted when I see my coaches training, although sometimes things get more serious. I am privileged."
