Zinedine Zidane has claimed that the Real Madrid job “wears you out”.
The Frenchman speaking ahead of Sunday’s trip to Espanyol, also said he will not coach for another 20 years.
“I won’t coach for 20 years. I’ll retire before that. I’m an unusual coach, anything could happen. I’m not planning anything. It’s the day-to-day that excites me. For how long, I don’t know.
“In my head, I’ve always been a player. I played for 18 or 19 years, and after that when people asked me if I’d be a coach, I said no. Then I decided to become one. This really wears you out. It won’t be 20 years, that’s for sure,” Zidane.
Madrid and rivals Barcelona are locked in a frantic LaLiga title race, level on points.
However, Zidane’s team are top; thanks to their head-to-head record, with seven games left to play over just three weeks.
