LaLiga: Real Madrid manager, Zidane confirms clear-the-air talks

They have a game in hand, but their hopes of a successful title defence already appear in tatters.

"That is what I believe in, and the players think the same".

Zidane, who has been in charge since January 2016, said he understood he would have limited time at the helm of Madrid.

"We have had two great years and that shouldn't be forgotten".

"It is impossible to win everything each year, and I have to admit that things look very hard in La Liga", he added.

"We won't live in the past, but we shouldn't throw away what has been done either".

"I want to show that I am also a good coach in the hard times", Zidane told France Football yesterday as he was awarded manager of the year for the second time by the prestigious magazine in his homeland on the back of eight trophies in his first 24 months in senior management.

The report goes on to claim that Real president Florentino Perez is interested in the offer as it could help fund a future move for Paris Saint-German star Neymar.

"You can analyse it however you like and say we are in a time of crisis". It is not about physical or mental, it is a bit of everything, and continuing stronger.

Spanish daily Marca reported that a deal had been agreed earlier in December, which they said would be formally completed following Madrid's participation in the Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi. And the club really appreciate what he has done in these last years. I don't think about anything else. The most important thing is to give our best.

"Until the 31st [of January] we will see, but not at the moment, why?"

Holders Barcelona host Celta on Thursday after drawing 1-1 in the first leg at Balaidos last week.
