Zidane to remain in charge of Real Madrid next season

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane will keep his job whether or not Real Madrid win either of the Champions League or LaLiga in the coming months.

Always deflecting the question towards Florentino Perez, the Frenchman has not considered his contract situation to be a pressing matter as he focuses on the fixture run-in and even makes plans for pre-season and the summer transfer window, according to Marca.

However club president Perez has always been a big backer of Zidane ever since the current boss joined as a midfielder, a transfer which began a mutually reciprocated working relationship.

Indeed, the former reserve team coach has earned the blind trust of Florentino and his performance is not so much measured on results as it is on the threefold love that emanates from the fans, staff, and players.

A renewal until June 2018 is thus a formality, and the length of contract is backed by both men who consider Sir Alex Ferguson-esque tenures to be an unrealistic aim in modern football.

Just earning a new deal can be considered a monumental achievement by Zidane, who is targeting a first league and europe double for Real since 1958, as only Jose Mourinho has also been given an extension among Los Blancos' recent managers.
