Zinedine Zidane says he might be the manager next season

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, says he doesn't know whether he'll be in charge of the club next season. The Frenchman replaced Rafael Benitez midway through the current after a series of poor results but iterates that his role as manager doesn't necessarily mean he'll still be at the helm next season.

Real Madrid succumbed to their first loss under Zidane going down 1-0 to cross-city rivals, Atletico Madrid, at the Bernabeu but what is more striking is that Diego Simeone's men have won at the Bernabeu three times in a row.

Asked if whether Zidane would stay on as manager next season, the Frenchman sais nothing was for granted at Real Madrid. "What a question, eh?" he responded.

"The important thing is the day to day. I am very happy here, enjoying my work, improving every day. When I arrived here, two months ago, everything was great. Now it is all black. I understand that is your concern, but it is not mine.

"I don't know what will happen in three months, nobody knows. We must just focus on tomorrow -- me and the players. I cannot say anything about the rest."

Zidane, however, admitted that the season has gone on according to a 'plan' and that there could be a bunch of changes in the summer.

"The only thing I can say is that we are focused now on what we have in front," he said.

"It's true that things have happened, and things always happen, above all in this club. But the important thing is for us to be united, together, and think about tomorrow's game. Then Saturday (Celta Vigo at home), then the Champions League, then at the end of the season for sure there might be changes.

"We have an obligation, to ourselves and to all our fans, to give our maximum now."

"When I am coach we will always fight, in each game. Now we are just thinking about tomorrow's game -- to win, and just that," he concluded.

Real Madrid travel to face Levante tonight in the Liga BBVA and will look to keep up with title rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
