Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has denied reports stating that he has opened up to his players to leave the club by this summer. The manager made it clear that he has not informed his players about his departure from the club. Sources claimed the Frenchman told his team players about a week ago that he would leave Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Zinedine Zidane Down Plays Leaving Madrid
Zinedine Zidane, who has led Real Madrid to back-back finals in the Uefa Champions League, has had a very tough season presently. Real Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao 1-0 on Sunday to take the La Liga title race to the final day as Atletico also won their own game. The manager said: “How could I tell the players I’m leaving now? We’re giving our everything for the title, and I just say, ‘by the way, I’m off?” he asked.
He also said people outside the club could say whatever they want to say, but he will never, ever say that to his players.” Real Madrid is two points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid, and the league game remains one to goal. Real Madrid will play Villarreal at home in their legendary Bernabeu next Sunday on the final day of the season while Atletico will be playing Real Valladolid. If Atletico draws or loses the match, Real Madrid claims the league title, provided they win theirs. The 48-year-old said they should not talk about his future because what he has now is more important than that, which is the last game season.
