The Frenchman appears to be on a slippery slope as his side risk enduring a trophyless 2020/21 season.

Zinedine Zidane has cast doubt on his Real Madrid future saying “anything can happen” after this season.

Real Madrid were knocked out of the Champions League at the semi-finals stage at the hands of Chelsea following a 3-1 aggregate defeat.

Prior to the Champions League heartbreak, Los Blancos had endured Copa del Rey upset as they had crashed out of the competition following a 2-1 defeat against Segunda Division B side Alcoyano.

The Spanish champions, as things stand, are set to concede their league crown to local rivals Atletico Madrid.

Zidane’s future as the club manager has been called into question in recent weeks, and the Frenchman has done little to end the speculations.

“This question is very boring. The truth is that there are two games left. I do not know what will happen,” he said, via Marca.

“Anything can happen. This is Real Madrid. I do not see myself beyond the day to day. You might think that I say it to take away responsibility because things are getting complicated. It is not like that. I do what I do, and I do it to the fullest.

“There comes a time when you need a change because it is good for everyone. There are times when you have to stay and other times when you have to leave for the good of everyone.”
