Real Madrid Boss Zinedine Zidane Insists He Has ‘Complete Backing’ Despite Pressure

Under-fire Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says that he has the backing of the club’s players and hierarchy despite their recent run of poor form..”

Real have won one of their last five games in all competitions, with local media reporting the Frenchman has two games to save his job, starting with Saturday’s trip to Sevilla in La Liga.

Zidane, however, said he has the support of everyone at the club.

“Yes, I have the club’s complete backing,” he told a news conference on Friday.

“I can’t be satisfied when we lose a game, but we know where we are. We’re lucky enough to be able to fight and give our all for this club and that’s what I’ll do until my last day.

“The players want to compete (for trophies), to play and they’ve always shown me warmth. We know that together we will come through this. When things don’t go right, they’re the first people who aren’t happy.

“In tough times we need to pull together and in the same direction. We’ll get through this.”
