Zidane: “Juventus? Nobody called me and I’m only thinking about Real. I don’t know anything…today I am the head coach of Real Madrid but tomorrow this can change. Staying here is a responsibility… I am proud to be at Real and I enjoy every moment.”
Zidane says that it’s just speculations
Zinedine Zidane claims that he has not received any approach from Juventus regarding his return to Turin, but can’t offer any guarantees about his future as boss of Real Madrid. It’s been suggested that the French legend is looking for another of his former clubs back in Italy. The World Cup winner used the commemorative canopy in Serie A with the Bianconeri on his playing days before being added to the ‘Galacticos’ in Madrid. There were speculations about a possible repetition of these steps, and Juve, as they say, was furious about the next change in their duel. Maurizio Sarri is currently a manager but could be rescheduled if the opportunity arises to appoint Zidane.
No one contacted me from Juventus
The current boss of Los Blancos says there is currently no substance for these messages, telling reporters before meeting with Real Betis on Sunday: “No, no… No one has communicated to me, and I don’t know anything.” You know what it is, people say a lot of things. “While trying to distance himself from Juventus, Zidane admits he cannot say for sure whether he will continue to be at Santiago Bernabeu next season. He added: “This is not true. To know what will happen next does not exist. “I feel the support of the club, yes, that’s understandable. The people who work here, we all pull in the same direction. But after all this, I know how it works. I’m the head coach of Real Madrid today, but tomorrow it can change.”
Zidane returned Real Madrid to first place in La Liga, winning the El Clasico clash with Barcelona last time, bringing them back to the summit. The Los Blancos’ efforts in 2019-2020, however, were hindered by untimely injuries: Eden Hazard was among those who are currently stuck on the sidelines. The Belgian international striker was forced to undergo surgery after a brooch in February, and it is still not clear when the 29-year-old striker will return to the dispute over Madrid. Zidane said of his injured star: “I talked to him after the operation to find out how he is, and he is fine.” He was very annoyed after the injury, but now, as the operation went well, his mood is getting better. “Let’s hope that he can return with us soon. I can’t say when he may return before the end of the season.”
