Despite winning only his second league title with Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane has admitted that he’s not sure about his future at the club despite his success. The Los Blancos have lifted their 34th La Liga title with one game to go with their them unbeaten in their last ten games.

In his first full-season back at the club, the Frenchman has guided the club to their first league title since the 2016/17 season with his trophy haul now at 11. That includes the three consecutive Champions League titles Zidane won in his first spell with the club, alongside the Supercopa de Espana and the league title this season. The club are still in the running for another Champions League crown but will have to overcome a 2-1 deficit when they visit the Etihad in August.

Yet despite that, there have been rumours floating about Madrid with Zidane’s job potentially under threat with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Maximiliano Allegri waiting. And Zidane believes that not even winning the league title could ensure his future at the club and he admitted that he’s happy with his current contract. He also added that things could change overnight in football and he has no clue what might happen.

"Nobody knows what's going to happen in the future. I never talk about next season or the following year. I've got a contract and I'm happy. You never know what will happen in the future. Things can change overnight in the world of football and I have no idea what the future holds,” Zidane said, reported Goal.

The Los Blancos have one game left in their league season and many believe that it will be nothing more than an average performance from the club having already confirmed their title. But Zidane has urged his side to finish the season at their very best and that he believes his side will find the motivation to beat Leganes on Sunday. He also added that their plan is to finish the season to the best of their abilities while they keep testing and pushing themselves. 

"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. 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,” he added.
