Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has said he will make any decision that they wish to take about his position ‘easy’ for the club.

The Frenchman, who has won three Champions League trophies and two La Liga titles in two spells as Real coach, could find his future under threat should Real end the season trophyless.

The La Liga champions were dumped out of the Copa del Rey by third tier Alcoyano in January and were defeated comfortably by Chelsea in their Champions League semi-final this week.

They are second in la Liga, two points behind Atletico Madrid, and require their city rivals to slip up if they are to stand a chance of retaining their crown.

‘Let’s just finish this season. What I will say is that I’ll make things easy for the club, always, because they’ve always given me everything,’ Zidane told a news conference on Saturday.

‘Everyone does their job. I don’t think about criticism. Am I responsible? Sure. When we win I have part of that responsibility and when we lose too.

‘I don’t know if I’m the right one or not, but at the moment I’m the Real Madrid coach.’  

‘I’ll make things very easy, but right now we are all focused on the four remaining games and ending the season well. That’s what motivates me. All the rest is just talk.

‘I do not want to give problems to the club. It is what I said before. I focus on what we have tomorrow.’

Zidane has been heavily linked with a return to Turin and former club Juventus amid growing pressure on under-fire boss Andrea Pirlo, with the Old Lady desperate to win the Champions League again.

A return to his former club would see him link up with Cristiano Ronaldo again, with the pair enjoying huge success together in the Spanish capital.  

Real host fourth-placed Sevilla on Sunday as they bid to remain in the title race, but they will be without captain Sergio Ramos who has picked up a hamstring injury.

The centre back joined fellow defenders Rafael Varane, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez on the sidelines.
