Zidane: I’m staying at Real Madrid

 

 

 

 

In his post-match interview with La Sexta, Zidane stated that he will remain as manager Carlo Ancelotti’s right hand man, despite offers to command his own side from his former club, Bordeaux.

 

“For the moment, I’m here.  I will continue here at Real Madrid.  We’ll see what happens…

 

“I’m enjoying the experience [of managing]. It’s like playing, but I’m enjoying.”

 

For his part, Bordeaux president, Jean-Louis Triaud admitted that there were negotiations, but Zidane chose to spend another year working under Ancelotti.

 

“I won’t deny that we had numerous contacts, but unfortunately, we couldn’t reach an agreement.  He is committed to Real Madrid and we can’t forget that his family is very comfortable after living there for 11 years.”
