The Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane, said he wouldn`t be surprised if the loss by Atletico Madrid in the city derby at the weekend at a time would cost him his job.
The Frenchman took over the team on January 4 when the President Florentino Perez sacked his predecessor Rafael Benitez because of poor results. The arrival of the legendary French fixed the situation in the first weeks, but then the team again started experiencing difficulties on the ground and everything resonates in this 0:1 from Atletico, which left the `White Ballet` 12 points behind the leader Barcelona in La Liga.
The defeat sparked turmoil in the exclusive club, which started with the infamous statement by Cristiano Ronaldo after the final whistle.
`I have full confidence in our players.`, said the specialist. `I believe that they all support me. Next year we may have to make changes, maybe even a coaching change. Whatever happens, however, we must continue to do our job.`, added the 43-year-old Frenchman.
`I`m not happy with the way the match mentioned by soccer predictions went against Atletico. No and how to be, if we lost. I didn`t like how we played. Right now it is more important to concentrate on the upcoming meetings. The title is not yet a lost cause, it just gets more difficult when you`re missing the points. We will not throw in the towel. It`s tough to lose to Atletico, especially at home, but we have no right to give up.`, added Zizou.
