Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane coy over future ahead of El Clasico

Zinedine Zidane was vague when asked over his future at Real Madrid ahead of their showdown against Barcelona .

Los Blancos have now lost two in a row, a shock defeat to Levante and a Champions League blow to Manchester City .

Pep Guardiola outfoxed Zidane at the Bernabeu midweek after a masterclass from Kevin de Bruyne.

The Belgian assisted one and scored a penalty to see City come back from 1-0 down to win 2-1 in Madrid.

It sets up a fine second leg at the Etihad in two weeks time.

But before that, Real must face Barcelona in El Clasico with the stakes as high as ever.

Barca lead their arch-rivals by two points and a win for either side could be crucial for either side.

But question marks are raised at the Bernabeu when two matches are lost in a row.

A third and the blame could start to be pointed towards Zidane, though the Frenchman was coy over his future.

He was asked if his tenure was based on whether or not he brought trophies to the club.

He said: "What I care about is continuing what we're doing, so ask someone else.

"Only one team wins in each competition and we're going to try and make it us."

Real have not tasted victory since February 9 when they beat Osasuna 4-1.

Injuries have rocked the squad in that time, with Eden Hazard likely out for the season as well as Marco Asensio while Rodrygo is suspended.

Zidane added: "What we need to ensure is our mood is positive. It's by sticking together that we're going to get out of this and not listening to what's being said.

"What we need is for our fans to be with us from the first minute to the 90th. I can understand if they are frustrated or annoyed, but we need them."
