Under-Fire Zinedine Zidane Believes He May Be Sacked Despite Contract Extension

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has defended his club’s form but admits that his new contract offers no guarantees for his long-term future at the club.

Real had an unimpressive 2-2 draw with Numancia in the second leg of their Copa del Rey tie, advancing to the quarter-finals having won the first leg 3-0.

The result of that game was a second successive draw for Madrid, and Barcelona’s 3-0 win in the Bernabeu before Christmas means the away game with Numancia is their only win in their last four games.

Los Blancos also trail Barcelona by 16 points in La Liga, and face a crunch last-16 Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain.

Zidane has come under fire for their alarming dip in form, just months after just leading them to the double.

Asked about his contract following the drab draw with Numancia, he said: “It is already signed. I have until 2020.

“I go match by match, year by year, like last year. I cannot look two or three years ahead because having the contract does not mean anything.” Mirror Sport reports.
