It has not been a dream return for Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, with the Frenchman currently hanging by the thread over bad performances.

Zidane could lose his job at the Santiago Bernabeu, if there are no notable improvements, with former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho now backed for a second stint with the Los Blancos.

Real Madrid has lost their place at the top of the La Liga table to rivals Barcelona, and are currently bottom of the Group A Champions League table.

Ahead of a crucial Champions League fixture at Galatasaray on Tuesday, Zidane has opened up on the speculations over losing his job to the Portuguese, admitting it bothers him.

“In football, people forget what you’ve done in the past.” Zidane said.

“The important thing is the present…I’m not going to say it doesn’t bother me what is being said about other coaches because it does.

“But what I have to do as a coach is to give everything, get the players to do the same, to give everything – and that’s all I can do.

“It’s a great game to play in, a great stadium, Champions League…we know what the situation is and we’re going to try and win.”

Quizzed if losing against Galatasaray, could be his last job as a manager at Real Madrid, Zidane said: “I don’t know. You can’t ask me that. All I can do is try and be here as long as I can. I want to be here forever.”

On dealing with the pressure, he added: “We know what the situation is,” he said. “We started badly in the Champions [League] but we’ve got a chance tomorrow to prove ourselves and that’s what we are going to try and do.

“I’ve been here for 18 years as a player and a coach. I know how things are. The pressure is always with you so we have to go out and prepare well for the game.”
