Ex-Real Madrid defender Pavon backs coach Zidane

Zinedine Zidane confirms Real Madrid contract renewal will stay at the club till 2020

Zidane has a long way to go at Real Madrid

The French manager now finds his side struggling in the Spanish top flight and has a daunting task at hand in Europe where Real Madrid have been drawn against Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the last-16 of the Champions League. You can change, but that would be in June.

"But I am happy with the performance of them all, I'm happy these players got more minutes, and the first leg [3-0 victory] was important. I think there are always up and downs throughout the season and I hope Real Madrid continue to fight for the goals they have this season". I have very good players, and do not see anyone who can change all that. You have to see the positive, which is that we are still alive in all of the competitions.

The French legend had a near ideal start to his managerial career at Real Madrid, winning eight out possible ten trophies in his first two seasons.

Despite being off the pace in La Liga, Real have made it through to the knockout phase of the Champions League and are into the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Cam Newton embellished injury to buy time, Panthers admit
The trash talk between Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan has been well-documented. We did enough as a team to lose that game, more so than the Saints did to win that game.

"When a player is bad, I will help him".

However, Zidane has said he does not plan to strengthen in the January transfer window and he trusts his current squad, per beIN Sports. But on both occasions, their modest visitors fought back thanks to a brace from Guillermo on the stroke of half-time and then after 82 minutes.

Arab News casts its eye over possible replacements for Zidane should be sacked... "These are discussions that happen in a team", he said.

It is now clear that this team peaked last season, when they lifted Champions League and La Liga trophies, whereas los Blancos have been utterly disappointing this term. It will be an interesting fixture when these team meet each other at Eibar's homeground. The good thing is that we will not leave Madrid. Guillermo, who had been on the pitch only a matter of moments after he replaced the injured Higinio Marin, netted from close range to draw the away side level on the evening. Los Blancos are determined to stay in the race for the title and this has to go down as a must-win game as any slip ups from hereon will make life hard for the reigning champions. Ronaldo and boys ideally should win the game but they have conceded 9 of their last 13 home league games. We must find our best form if we want to go through [v PSG].
