Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is reportedly set to step down from his position in the summer, but he did not reveal anything after Los Blancos‘ final match of the season on Saturday.
Zidane saw his side come back from behind to beat Villarreal 2-1, but Atletico Madrid’s victory away at Real Valladolid secured the title for Diego Simeone’s side.
“We have to congratulate Atletico, who deserve [to be champions], because whoever is at the top deserves it,” Zidane said in his post-match press conference.
“But the most important thing is what the [Real Madrid] players have done. With time and with calmness, I will talk to the club [about my future] later.
“I have to thank our fans because they have always supported the team from the outside. I think everyone can be proud of the players, because they have given everything.
“It wasn’t easy but in the end we won [against Villarreal]. It’s a day to congratulate the whole squad. And that’s it.”
Zidane‘s future was the hot topic during the press conference, and he made clear that he will sit down with the club in the coming days.
“Now we have to be calm and in the next few days we’ll talk about it,” the Frenchman stated.
“In a little while we’ll see what’s going to happen. Not only with me, but with everything the club is going to do for next season.”
When asked about his mood, the Real Madrid boss was honest.
“The mood [I have] is gutted,” Zidane responded.
“If you ask me that, that’s the answer.”
