Zidane may be running out of time at Real Madrid

Wednesday night's 2-1 loss to Leganes in the Copa del Rey saw Zinedine Zidane's side crash out of the Copa del Rey on away goals at the quarter-final stage and represents the latest embarrassment in an increasingly calamitous campaign.

With the daunting prospect of facing Paris St Germain in the Champions League next month, Zidane is coming under intense scrutiny after a run in which Real have won just two of their last six games in all competitions.

"It's a fiasco", said the Frenchman.

"I don't regret it".

When asked about Zidane's outlook as Real's head coach, he told Marca: "I'm not a big fan of changes".

Leganes lost the first leg 1-0, but secured their first win at the Bernabeu and a place in the semi-finals for the first time on away goals as the tie ended 2-2 on aggregate.

Donald Trump's fake news awards are due to take place today
This alone should be a source of great shame for us in this body, especially for those of us in the president's party. Critics argue that he simply brands any negative reports on his leadership and actions as " fake news ".

"We haven't started well in LaLiga and we are disappointed, nobody is happy about that", he added. I'm angry and I can't understand it.

"The only thing that remains for us is the Champions League". He said: "I'm responsible for this, I'm the boss. I'm the coach. I'm the one who has to find the solutions".

"We must give more, me first, as all that we have given so far is not enough, we must give more, train harder, help each other more, and we will try and do that". "I will continue to fight, to work, to battle and to find the things the team needs." stated the 1998 World Cup victor.

"After winning the first leg, we can't be starting the game like we did today".

In the semifinals, Leganes and Sevilla will be joined by Valencia - who beat Alaves on penalties earlier on Wednesday - and the winners of Thursday's second leg between Barcelona and Espanyol.

Either it seems the loser of the home and way matchup will lose his job (Emery for PSG or Zidane for Real Madrid). "Now we have to think about tomorrow, to get up and keep working because on Saturday there is another game". The southern Madrid side have the 18th most-valuable squad in Primera and only Levante, Girona, Las Palmas and Getafe are prevented from spending less overall this season in line with Liga-imposed salary limits. He led the club to two Champions League titles, one Spanish league trophy and consecutive titles in both the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup.
