Zidane denies Real Madrid exit reports

"How could I tell the players I'm leaving now? We're giving our everything for the title and I just say 'by the way, I'm off'?" Zidane told reporters. 

Real Madrid must win next weekend and see Atletico Madrid lose in order to claim the league title.

Zinedine Zidane has denied telling Real Madrid players this past week that he would leave the club, claiming he “would never, ever say that to my players”.

“How could I tell the players I’m leaving now? We’re giving our everything for the title and I just say ‘by the way, I’m off’?” Zidane told reporters.

“People outside the club can say whatever they like, but I would never, ever say that to my players.”

Despite beating Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, Zidane’s men are in danger of finishing 2020-21 without a trophy, as they remain two points behind Atletico Madrid in La Liga with one match to go. The leaders earned a last-gasp victory over Osasuna this weekend in a blow to Real Madrid’s ambitions.

Real Madrid must win next weekend and see Atletico Madrid lose in order to claim the league title.

They face Villarreal, while Atletico will visit a Valladolid side fighting to avoid relegation.

Atletico Madrid and Suarez are on fire and are therefore favourites to win the La Liga title this season.
