Zinedine Zidane: Real Madrid contract "means nothing"

Zinedine Zidane: Real Madrid contract

Despite guiding his side to multiple triumphs including two UEFA Champions League triumph and La Liga success last season, Zidane admits the fact that he is not supposed to be at helm of Real Madrid for 10 years.

As illustrated by Sunday's draw at Celta Vigo, however, Real haven't been their free-flowing selves of late-or this season, for that matter.

"We are all in this together".

And according to Spanish transfer outlet Don Balon, Ronaldo has had his say on who should replace Zidane.

That proved to be the final piece of goal-mouth action in the half although the visitors were reduced to 10 men in stoppage time when Dani Calvo picked up his second yellow card of the game. "There are always hard times during the season, which is what you're trying to convey, but I don't think like that", he said, according to Real Madrid's official website.

Zidane made it clear that he wants to see a reaction from Real Madrid's players after their recent disappointments, and also wanted to know first hand that he had the support of everyone.

Zidane had also won the Champions League and La Liga with Real before hanging up his boots.

In La Liga, they are 16 points behind league leaders and arch-rivals FC Barcelona, who recently thrashed them 3-0 at El Grand Clasico in December.

MADRID-Zinedine Zidane is hoping his words will help put Real Madrid back on track. When there are things like we're going through, where things aren't going as we want, it's about work. "I will not throw in the towel due to some bad months".

"We can't do anything more, we're trying to play good football, to move the ball around and score goals but it's not coming off". I'm just another person and nobody is above Real Madrid.

"I'm not going to go into the details". I'm more interested in unity.

Should Real triumph in all four matches, they'll approach their monumental Champions League Round of 16 tie versus Paris Saint-Germain with restored confidence in their method and manager.
