Zinedine Zidane confirms new Real Madrid contract - but says it 'means nothing'

Real's most obvious issue this season has been the lack of a consistent goal threat.

Real are preparing for Wednesday's Copa del Rey last 16, second leg at home to second-tier Numancia, which should be a formality after they won 3-0 in Soria last week.

"We are all in this together".

Zidane later remarked: "You can analyse whatever way you like and say that we are going through a time of crisis". Their second and third goals may have taken until the waning moments of the match when Numancia had been playing with ten men for almost half an hour, but more goals were always coming, and thanks to Isco and Borja Mayoral, they did.

People might think that everything comes easy to me, that I do it all by instinct, but they'd be wrong.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane on Wednesday confirmed that he has signed a contract extension which will keep him at the European champions until 2020.

When he was asked about reinforcements in the press conference prior to the Real Madrid-Numancia of the Copa del Rey 2017/2018, Zidane was clear.

The team were the first to have defended their title in Champions League era.

They are fourth in La Liga, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona, and they ended 2017 with a crushing 3-0 defeat at home in the El Clasico. "That's when we look at things and decide if we need a change or not".

"I know how it goes, nothing more, even with this contract it does not change anything". "A draw is not the best result, but we'll continue to do our job in a positive way and at some point we'll see the results of this hard work", the Real boss said.

"For me, we are recovering things and we will [recover] with my players and staying relaxed, without problems".

"That is what I believe in, and the players think the same", Zidane continued. As Madrid's dry run is getting unfolded weeks after weeks, Zidane has acknowledged the fact that the clock is ticking real fast and he is expected to have limited time at Madrid.
