’s contract with

Real Madrid

is near expiration as the fourth anniversary of his appointment at Madrid is approaching. Ahead of Los Blancos’ Saturday match against

Celta Vigo

, The French coach was asked about a possible extension to his contract.

"It takes a lot out of you, but it's a great position here.

"I'm lucky enough to say I'm manager of Real Madrid and take advantage of every moment. I can't say a month, a year or four years. Life is just about the day to day.

"That's what I'm interested in: the day to day, to give everything I can, in every training session, every game. That's what I'm interested in.

"The rest? I don't know what's going to happen in one week. That's why we have to take advantage of the moment."

Zidane has managed to win 11 major trophies with Real Madrid but this season’s LaLiga seems to be a tough objective to fulfil. Defending champions are currently in the table’s second place with 33 points from 16 games.

"Being first means you have an advantage, and that's it," Zidane explained. "We just have to keep on going. We can't control [


being favourites].

"They have an advantage because they're first, and that's it. People are speaking a lot about Atletico now, because, as I said, they're first.

"But the nice thing about this league, right up until the end, it's going to be an open league - as it always is. We'll see."
