Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will stand by Zidane

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to stand by coach Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane and Florentino are both under huge pressure after eliminations from the Supercopa de Espana and Copa del Rey inside a week.

There has been talk of Florentino asking for Zidane's resignation this week.

But El Chiringuito's Josep Pedrerol has revealed Florentino has told his fellow directors they must stand by Zidane to at least the end of the season.

Indeed, Florentino has declared Zidane "untouchable" and the Frenchman will only leave if he chooses to.
