Zidane ‘uncertain’ of Madrid stay

Zinedine Zidane admits his Real Madrid future is ‘uncertain’ but insists “I wouldn’t change my squad” and that “we can win the Champions League.”

Madrid have only the Champions League left as a realistic target for silverware this season after falling 19 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona and being knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Leganes.

“If I thought my message wasn’t compatible with the squad, I’d leave tomorrow,” the Coach said at a Press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash with Valencia.

“In the life of a footballer, there are bad and good moments, and what I have to do is reverse the situation. I feel strong enough to change it.

“We can win the Champions League and we’ll do everything possible to do so. I’m trying to keep the faith and improve as a Coach.

“No-one’s going to take away my enthusiasm of working here until my last day. The players are the same, although the blame doesn’t lie with them.

“We have to get out of this by working hard. We can change things. I’m the only one who sees things positively. I’m not only saying it to protect myself.

“We have to think about when we played well and trying to repeat it. My future? It’s uncertain.

“I go day by day, which is what’s needed, I’ll keep going with the same enthusiasm and we’ll see in June.

“Regrets over Morata, James and Pepe leaving? I don’t have any. I wouldn’t change anything.

“It’s very easy to say that I would, but I accept it for what it is. I was happy with the squad in August and I don’t regret anything now.”
