Zidane: I Will Eventually Be Sacked

share on:

Zidane says he does not fear the axe that seems to loom over him and believes Madrid will sack him one day.

The former Madridsta replaced Rafael Benitez at the helm of the club and led them to their 11th UCL title.

However, he could not deliver the La Liga trophy with Madrid finishing one point behind Barcelona.

Madrid have drawn four successive games – three in the league and one in the Champions League – and the pressure on Zidane has begun to build.

“I’m not afraid of being fired,” he told RMC. “Anyway, it will happen.

“I thoroughly enjoy what I do. I have an incredible opportunity, I am happy wth what I do. I enjoy my job, which is not always easy.

“But I want to learn and advance. Working with these great players I learn every day. I am dedicated to what I do on the field. What is interesting to me is the week [of training], more than the matches.

“I have an exceptional group, whether we win or we lose they are good people.”

Zidane believes Madrid’s current problems are more psychological than physical, and is confident he will be able to find a solution to get them back to winning ways.

He added: “What’s important it’s to find solutions and I’ll find the solution. There is nothing catastrophic, but it’s not trivial.

“I don’t think it’s a physical problem. It’s the first minutes of the games that are penalising us. The content of these games in LaLiga were very bad, especially against Villarreal.

“It’s psychological. We are trying to find the problem.”
