Zinedine Zidane, a former excellent footballer and now Real Madrid coach, admitted that he was not going to work in this capacity until retirement. “I don’t assume I’m going to be a trainer for another 20 years,” said the 48-year-old Frenchman.
He added during a meeting with journalists that he lives rather day by day and does not make far-reaching plans.
– I have no idea until when I will work as a trainer. But life writes different scenarios. Earlier I focused on the profession of footballer, for 18 years that was all I had in my head. When someone asked me if I was thinking of a trainer, my first answer was that it wasn’t because it was a tiring job – Zidane, a world champion from 1998 and 2000 from Europe, said with a smile.
Now, however, he is pleased with his occupation.
– I’m lucky because I work with the best. I like matches, but I enjoy training and conducting classes even more – he added.
The “royal” are evenly fought with FC Barcelona for the title of Spanish champion. On Sunday evening, his players will face the last Espanyol Barcelona.
– The first will play with the last, but it means nothing. Rivals at their own stadium have nothing to lose and will fight for three points, which they need as much as we do – summed up Zidane
