Zinedine Zidane has cast doubts over his future as Real Madrid manager.
Madrid were crowned Spanish La Liga champions on Thursday following their 2-1 win over Villarreal at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.
The Frenchman has two years left on his current deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, but has refused to make any assurances of continuing on as the gaffer beyond this season.
“I have a contract here but you never know what will happen,” said Zidane. “I am not talking about what’s going to happen next season or the following year. I have a contract, I am happy here, and I am happy with what I am doing but you never know what will happen in football.
“That’s why I feel so relaxed with my future because in the world of football things could change overnight. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. I am happy with what I am doing here and we will see for how long.”
The former Madrid midfielder also urged his squad to remain focused on their last game of the La Liga campaign against Leganes, who are fighting to escape the drop this term.
“We have to find that motivation. It’s a league game. When we put on the Real Madrid shirt, we want to win all the games,” he said. “That’s the DNA at Real Madrid. It’s a league game, not a friendly, and we want to play well. I don’t think we’ve got anything to prove. We just want to maintain this positive momentum. We want to keep winning.
“We have another big game. We said there were 11 finals. There were 10 and we won the league, but we want to finish in the best way possible.
“We want to keep pushing and testing ourselves until the very end of the season. There will be a few days’ rest after the game against Leganes, but the season continues. We will be back training and preparing for City after the game against Leganes.”
Zidane also admitted he would love to see Karim Benzema, who netted all two goals against the Yellow Submarine to get his hands on the Pichichi Award. The Frenchman is two shy of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi who has 23 goals.
“I’d love for Benzema to get the Pichichi,” said Zidane. “But I’m not going to say who’s going to play. He’s a player whose done a great job and deserves to end the season as the top goalscorer, but it’s going to go down to the final game of the season. Let’s see what happens on Sunday.”
