Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has insisted he will not resign, despite another disappointing showing from his side on Tuesday night, December 1, 2020, in a 2-0 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk.
After the match completed a shocking victory for the Ukrainians over Madrid, weeks after losing 3-2 at home to Shakhtar, Real Madrid's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League last 16 are still in doubt.
The Madrid hierarchy might ask Zidane if results do not improve with Madrid now having lost some key matches recently
After their defeat to Shakhtar, Madrid have conceded nine goals in five Champions League group-stage games, their worst defensive record at this stage in the competition’s history.
But Zidane is optimistic.
“It is a difficult moment but I am convinced that we are going to bring out our character because we have to win the next game,"
"I am convinced that we can do it." he said
“I believe in the players and of course I have strength. The other day against Alaves we did not deserve to win but today we did. There is no choice but to work and continue so that the good results return."
