Zinedine Zidane has decided not to resign as the head coach of Real Madrid over poor performance from his side in a 2-0 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk.
According to him, he’s not going to quit his job because Real Madrid suffered a humiliating defeat to the Ukrainian side on Tuesday night, December 1, 2020.
Zinedine Zidane said;
“I am not going to resign – not at all,” he said following Tuesday’s defeat.“We have always had delicate moments. It is true that it is a bad streak in terms of results, but we must continue. Today was a final, we prepared very well, but we know there is a game to go and we have to win and that’s it.”
“I believe in the players and of course I have strength. The other day against Alaves we did not deserve to win but today we did. There is no choice but to work and continue so that the good results return.”
After their defeat to Shakhtar, Madrid has conceded nine goals in five Champions League group-stage games, their worst defensive record at this stage in the competition’s history.
But Zidane is optimistic.
“It is a difficult moment but I am convinced that we are going to bring out our character because we have to win the next game,”
“I am convinced that we can do it,” he said
