Real hold all the cards v Numancia

Zinedine Zidane's Real future is now up in the air.

Zinedine Zidane has confirmed he has signed a new deal to remain at Real Madrid until 2020 but the France boss suggested that his position at the Santiago Bernabeu will still be reviewed at the end of the current season. I can't think about two or three years from now because it doesn't work like that.

"You can analyze it any way you want it, saying it is a crisis or whatever, but we are here to find solutions", Zidane said. "There are moments in the season that are hard, but everything is in front of us and we will see what happens between now and the end of the season". You said I could go against my President and the club to get new players.

Numancia answered just before the break through Guillermo, who latched onto the end of a ideal Marc Mateu cross after a defence-splitting ball from Dani Nieto freed him down the left side.

His side will continue their defence of the UEFA Champions League title against a French team coached by a Spaniard.

Zidane also spoke about the bad performance that Real Madrid suffered this season, which let Barcelona ahead of the White team with 16 points in La Liga. However, while the Frenchman gets to grips with his first real taste of managerial pressure from the Real board and the club's brutal supporters, he remains unfazed.

"We can't do anything more, we're trying to play good football, to move the ball around and score goals but it's not coming off".

If Real Madrid can't defend against second division sides then they could have trouble in a month when Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe are charging at them. "Many people might say it has all gone wrong, but I don't". "Whether it is as a player or as a coach, I've always worked", said Zidane.

It was the longest meeting the coach has had with his players since he took over two years ago.

Holders Barcelona host Celta on Thursday after drawing 1-1 in the first leg at Balaidos last week. Aside from that, we had a good game.
