"I'm an unusual coach, anything could happen. I'm not planning anything. It's the day-to-day that excites me. For how long, I don't know.

"In my head I've always been a player. I played for 18 or 19 years, and after that when people asked me if I'd be a coach, I said no.

"Then I decided to become one. This really wears you out. It won't be 20 years, that's for sure."

Zidane has had a remarkable coaching spell so far, winning three successive Champions League crowned between 2016 and 2018.

Before that, he had been coaching the Team B in 2014 many years after retiring as a player after eight years as a Madridista.

He graduated into the first team and worked as Carlo Ancelotti's assistant before he was given the top job after Rafa Benitez was sacked during 2016-17 and won La Liga in his first season.
