Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane says he has no reason to quit the club because he loves what he is doing. The Frenchman also gave an insight into how he approached his job amid rumors about his future.
Zidane retired as a Real Madrid legend in the summer of 2006, after an immensely fruitful career. He was one of the finest players to grace the beautiful game, and his foray into football management has been equally enthralling.
The Frenchman took over the reins at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2016 and enjoyed tremendous success over two seasons before leaving the club in the summer of 2018.
In 2019, Zidane returned for a second spell. He managed to lead Real Madrid to a La Liga triumph last campaign, even though he struggled to repeat the success of his first stint.
This season, however, Los Blancos have lacked continuity, raising concerns about the future of Zidane. Nevertheless, the Real Madrid manager insisted, speaking at a press conference, that he was focused on the job at hand and did not think about his future.
“That’s a topic that’s very… Well, that’s why you’re here. That’s good. I’m focusing on the day-to-day stuff. That’s what interests me. What will happen, I don’t know. I’m not worried about the game tomorrow,” Zidane said.

Zidane also claimed that he had no reason to quit the La Liga champions. Instead, he revealed that he was more concerned about the day-to-day work at the club.
“Why would I quit? I’m doing what I like to do. There are difficult moments of course, but that’s life. We’re going to fight because that’s what we have to do. Real Madrid is a huge club. There will always be changes here. We’ll see… It’s the day-to-day work that worries me” said Zidane.
Real Madrid, which faces Getafe in midweek, is third in the La Liga table, seven points behind Atletico Madrid, which has two games in hand.
