Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is “not thinking about his future” earlier than Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg in opposition to Paris St-Germain.

Last season Real grew to become the primary staff to retain the Champions League and gained La Liga for the primary time since 2012.

This time period they’re already out of the Copa del Rey and fourth in La Liga, 17 factors behind leaders Barcelona.

“There will always be pressure here, it’s something habitual, but I’m going to keep enjoying myself,” stated Zidane.

Real warmed up for the sport on the Bernabeu with a 5-2 win in opposition to Real Sociedad, Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick.

“Right now I’m not thinking about my future,” stated Zidane, who succeeded Rafael Benitez as supervisor in January 2016.

“I’m only thinking about the game as it’s the only thing we can control so we’re focusing on preparing for the game and we’ll see what happens.”

Real and Brazil left-back Marcelo has backed his supervisor, saying the gamers “believe” within the Frenchman.

“He’s a great coach. It’s true we’re not in the situation we want to be but he’s doing everything to get us back to where we were,” stated Marcelo.

“He’s very patient, he believes in his work and we believe in him and his work.”
