” No, I don’t think about anything at all. Tonight (Wednesday) is a disappointment for everyone, for the players who gave their all. There are four La Liga games left, we are going to rest well, prepare for it and try to get something in La Liga. These were the words of Zinedine Zidane, this Wednesday evening, after the elimination of his Real Madrid against Chelsea in the semi-final of the Champions League (1-1, 0-2).
Because that’s what will interest everyone now that the Merengues will not be able to win a new Champions League. This Thursday morning, the Spanish newspapers explain at length that this season has been very difficult for Casa Blanca and that the future of the French coach is at the center of the discussions. Without the Champions League, without Copa del Rey (eliminated by Alcoyano), with a defeat in the Spanish Super Cup and with a very uncertain Liga, the white season is not far away.
As in 2018?
Marca also explains that Zidane was very touched emotionally by this double confrontation. Not just because Real Madrid were knocked out of the competition, but mostly because the former No.10 saw his team far inferior. ” They were superior, they deserved to win. They were more efficient, they had more opportunities. We had some too, but we didn’t manage to score. They deserved their qualification tonight (Wednesday) on all two matches », Explained the coach.
The Spanish newspaper claims that it is not excluded that Zinedine Zidane announces that he is leaving at the end of the season as when he had taken everyone by surprise by announcing his departure in 2018. On the side of the club, it is explained that Zidane has a contract and that a new point will be made at the end of this football year. But, today, nothing is certain and the fans are hanging on ZZ’s lips.
