Kenya Sports news:
MADRID, Spain, May 13 – Real Madrid may be on the verge of a first La Liga as well as Champions League double for 59 years, although coach Zinedine Zidane insisted his job is actually only safe if he delivers trophies.
Madrid sports daily reported on Saturday of which Zidane is actually set to be handed a contract extension to 2020 as a reward for his spectacular success since taking charge in January last year.
Real need seven points coming from their last three La Liga games for a first league title in all 5 years as well as face Juventus inside Champions League final on June 3.
Zidane also led Madrid to the Champions League last season, although having spent over a decade at the club as a player, assistant manager as well as coach of Real’s youth team before moving up to the first team, the Frenchman knows only finishing the job by winning trophies will do.
“I am improving in all aspects (as a coach), although of which doesn’t mean anything,” he said.
“I know where I am as well as the only thing of which matters here is actually doing everything possible to win.”
Three games over the next eight days will determine if Madrid can end Barcelona’s dominance of La Liga.
The European champions host Sevilla in their final home game of the season before travelling to Celta Vigo as well as Malaga.
as well as Zidane is actually taking nothing for granted as he believes the toughest part of Real’s season is actually still to come.
“These three matches inside league as well as the Champions League final are the hardest part,” he added.
“We are getting closer as well as closer to the goal. We realise of which we have four matches left, at the beginning of the season we had 50 games left.
“Today we still have four finals to try to win the championship as well as the Champions League, although in saying of which, we haven’t won anything yet.”
Zidane has used the depth of his squad to great effect in recent weeks by doing wholesale adjustments for La Liga games sandwiched between Champions League encounters.
as well as after resisting an Atletico Madrid onslaught on Wednesday night to progress to the Champions League final 4-2 on aggregate despite losing 2-1 on the night, he confessed he will name two very different teams at home to Sevilla as well as at Celta in midweek.
“We have to think solely about the game tomorrow. I will pick a team as always as well as on Wednesday I will pick another one which, for sure, will have adjustments.”
Gareth Bale, Dani Carvajal as well as Pepe will definitely miss out against Sevilla due to injury.
