Zidane hints at Real Madrid exit after La Liga title triumph


Zinedine Zidane has just won La Liga title and still has a contract with Real Madrid till 2022 but says his future at the club could have a different outlook.

With the league title wrapped up, the Spanish side can now focus on the second leg of their Champions League last-16 game against Manchester City. They trail 2-1 ahead of the second leg at the Etihad.

Despite just winning the league on Thursday, Zinedine Zidane was asked if he will remain be at the club next campaign.

He replied: “Nobody knows what’s going to happen in the future. I never talk about next season or the following year. I’ve got a contract and I’m happy. You never know what will happen in the future.

“Things can change overnight in the world of football and I have no idea what the future holds.”

Zidane has urged his side to maintain their intensity in their final league match of the campaign on Sunday against Leganes.

“We have to find that motivation. It’s a league game. When we put on the Real Madrid shirt, we want to win all the games,” he said.

“That’s the DNA at Real Madrid. It’s a league game, not a friendly, and we want to play well. I don’t think we’ve got anything to prove. We just want to maintain this positive momentum. We want to keep winning.

“We have another big game. We said there were 11 finals. There were 10 and we won the league, but we want to finish in the best way possible.

“We want to keep pushing and testing ourselves until the very end of the season. There will be a few days’ rest after the game against Leganes, but the season continues. We will be back training and preparing for City after the game against Leganes.”

While Zidane would be happy if Benzema wins the Pichichi Award for La Liga’s highest scoring player, but he was not willing to reveal his team selection for their trip to Butarque.

“I’d love for Benzema to get the Pichichi,” said Zidane. “But I’m not going to say who’s going to play. He’s a player whose done a great job and deserves to end the season as the top goalscorer, but it’s going to go down to the final game of the season. Let’s see what happens on Sunday.”
