Zidane relaxed as Real Madrid get ready for PSG clash
Zinedine Zidane insists he is not letting the pressure get to him as he prepares his Real Madrid side for Wednesday’s huge Champions League last-16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain at the Santiago Bernabeu.
My future does not bother me much just now.” Zidane has been going through the toughest period of his short managerial career, with Real fourth in La Liga, a huge 17 points behind leaders Barcelona, albeit with a game in hand.
He is a great coach who has done so much for this team and will keep on doing so to get things back to how they used to be.” Marcelo will be coming up against his international team-mate Neymar, who he claimed ahead of the game in an interview with Brazilian television would “one day play for Real Madrid”.
I have nothing that I need to demonstrate.” The tie is a special one for the Marseille-born Zidane, as he faces a French club for the first time since being appointed a Real coach in January 2016.
I just want a beautiful game of football.” Zidane got the full backing of Real’s Brazilian left-back Marcelo, who said the former World Cup winner has a great relationship with the stars in the Madrid dressing room.
That has led to speculation that the Frenchman’s future as coach is on the line against a feared PSG side, with the two-time defending European champions putting all their hopes in the Champions League going into the first leg of this tie.
