Zinedine Zidane seems to have cast doubts on his Real Madrid future barely two days after winning them the 34th La Liga title.

The Frenchman led Los Blancos to Spanish League triumph despite trailing rivals with two points before football went on break in March.

They were crowned champions for the first time since 2017 following their 2-1 victory over Villarreal earlier in the week.

The triumph pushed the former midfielder just three titles behind Miguel Munoz's club record 14 pieces of silverware.

He ended his first reign in charge of the team just five days after winning his third consecutive UCL glory.

The Frenchman returned to the club barely a year after leaving them following the sack of Santiago Solari and Julien Lopetegui's horror reigns.

Zidane is contracted to the Galacticos until the summer of 2022, but he has refused to guarantee that he will be in the dugout next year.

No-one knows what will happen,” he said at a press conference. “I have a contract, I like being here, but you never know what will happen in football.

Real's final game of the season would be against Leganes on Sunday, July 19, and the tactician has urged his players to wear their winning mentality for the encounter despite already winning the title.

They, however, have the task of overturning their 2-1 deficit against Manchester City in the Champions League next month.

"We have to find that motivation. It's a league game. When we put on the Real Madrid shirt, we want to win all the games," he said.

"That's the DNA at Real Madrid. It's a league game, not a friendly, and we want to play well. I don't think we've got anything to prove. We just want to maintain this positive momentum. We want to keep winning.

"We have another big game. We said there were 11 finals. There were 10 and we won the league, but we want to finish in the best way possible.
