Zidane reveals only condition he can continue as Real Madrid manager

Zidane reveals only condition he can continue as Real Madrid manager

Zinedine Zidane faces a selection dilemma over the duo when Sevilla visit this weekend after they were both benched again at Atletico Madrid in midweek, although his main focus will simply be on securing the first of four wins which would see Real crowned both Spanish and European champions.

"We have four finals left to play to try and win La Liga and the Champions League", Zidane told a news conference. "But we haven't won anything yet". They are hard. Sevilla have been towards the top of the LaLiga table all year and I think they're great, but we know these games will be tricky. "We are very close to our objective, but the hardest part is still to come". But that does not mean anything. "It's been 10 years where he's done fantastic things, but with this I'm not telling you what is going to happen next year because I do not know".

Zidane said he agreed with Manchester United's Juan Mata, who recently told El Pais that dealing with superstar individuals, not organising tactical systems, was the most important part of top level management. After beating arch-rivals Atletico Madrid, this will be Real Madrid's second consecutive Champions League final. It is another chance to get vital points and keep soldiering on.

At the other end of the table, Sporting Gijon will be relegated if they fail to win at Eibar.

First we had the agony of Neymar netting just before 16/1 tip Cedric Bakambu scored, and then Messi messed up the half-time draw/full-time Barcelona selection, preventing us from collecting a 4/1 victor on the market for second successive weekend.

Being open, transparent, harmonious and inclusive, the initiative is an invitation to all countries along the routes. All the projects were expected to be financed by China, which has already taken over the Gwadar port's handling.

"Look at what Celta are doing, and Malaga are in impressive shape at the moment".

"We're Real Madrid and we showed that we have more experience", added the prolific Portuguese, whose hat-trick at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg had given Real a huge advantage in the tie.

Zidane confirmed that Pepe, 34, had not yet recovered from a rib problem and will join Raphael Varane and Dani Carvajal on the sidelines, meaning Nacho Fernandez is likely to play at centre-back against Sevilla, with Danilo at right-back.

The two football giants Real Madrid and Juventus are due to battle it out in Cardiff in the upcoming Champions League final.

"No-one said it was going to be easy, but we achieved our objective which was to get through", said captain Sergio Ramos. But he's not even training with us. "I hope that soon", the French manages answered.
