Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has cast doubt over his long-term future at the club despite recently lifting the La Liga title
Zidane has led Los Blancos to their first La Liga crown after two years, overthrowing arch-rivals Barcelona from the throne only last weekend.
It was the Frenchman’s second league title after previously wrapping up the trophy in 2016/17 during his first managerial spell at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real head into the final matchday of the 2019/20 La Liga season harboring a seven-point lead over the Catalan giants, as they take on relegation-threatened Leganes on Sunday.
But, in the build-up to the team’s trip to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque, the 48-year-old French manager has refused to commit his future to the capital outfit.
“I am here now, but nobody knows what is going to happen,” Zidane said, as relayed by the Daily Express.

• without Cristiano
• without relying on Hazard
• without Jovic: the expected super-sub
• without Asensio who was supposed to have a breakout season
• with a single defensive midfielder
• with an aging core of the team
“I have a contract, and I am comfortable. In football everything can happen. Everything changes from one day to the next. I don’t know how long I will be in.
“I just feel lucky to be here. I really enjoy the day to day because this will one day end.”
Although the former World Cup winner has opened the possibility of abandoning the Real Madrid managerial role, tomorrow’s encounter with Leganes may not be his last match at the helm.
Indeed, after winning the league, Los Merengues can now focus on their upcoming Champions League clash against Manchester City.
Zidane’s men have a mountain to climb after suffering a 2-1 defeat at home in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
