Zinedine Zidane has threatened to quit Real Madrid if he feels undermined over team selections, according to the DailyStar.
The French manager has already sounded this notice once, soon after leading Los Blancos to the third of three successive Champions League titles.
And he sent a clear message to Bernabeu bosses telling them not to interfere in his choices.
Zidane was talking specifically about goalkeeper selection issues when he made his quit threat.
Los Blancos signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea last summer, while they also have Keylor Navas and Zidane's soon Luca on the books.
Real paid £35m for the Belgian stopper but Zidane made it clear that he will not be pressured into picking players based on transfer fee alone.
“I will decide who will be the first and second choice goalkeepers,” Zidane said.
“It's my decision. It's as clear as water. If I can't do what I want with my team, I'll leave, that's for sure.
“But the starting 11, the bench, those that aren't in the squad, that's only for me to decide.”
Zidane has made it clear that he wants Gareth Bale to leave the club this summer after freezing out the former Tottenham star.
It was rumoured that Navas was in a similar situation, but Zidane denied that the Costa Rican has been told to find a new club.
Real Madrid will be up against Real Betis in their final La Liga game of the season today (11am).
