Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says being a coach is exhausting and insists he has no intention of doing it for 20 years.

Zidane took charge of Real Madrid in 2016 before resigning two years later, explaining he felt the club needed a change.

In his goodbye press conference, Zidane said he had not forgotten “the hard moments” of the job.

But he returned towards the end of last season and has revitalised a struggling team, with Madrid beating Real Mallorca on Wednesday to go top of La Liga with seven games left.

“I won’t coach for 20 years, I will retire before that,” said Zidane in a press conference on Saturday.

“I haven’t planned anything in my head. What keeps me going is the day-to-day. In my head I have always been in football, I spent almost 18 years as a player and I said I would never be a coach. Now I am and it wears you out a lot. We will see but not for 20 years, that’s for sure.”
