Is Zidane tired and ready to resign?

According to, Real Madrid players feel that Zidane is tired and ready to resign. Zidane is tired because of the changes in routine due to Covid-19 pandemic:

He loves being at Valdebebas, conducting training sessions with a star-studded squad, but Covid-19 protocols have removed much of the fun factor associated with the post.

In the present, professional life in Madrid has become all about relentless rounds of testing - with Zidane now having to shower at home and carry out preparatory work away from his players.

The media, however, states Real Madrid board of directors want Zidane to continue on his current job.

However, there are rumours that Floretino Perez is conviced that a change is needed at the end of this season. Candidates for the coach position would be Raúl González, Massimiliano Allegri and Joachim Löw.

AS’ cover is also about if Zidane will continue.

Will lsco or Marcelo leave?
