According to Target, a ‘tired and irritated’ Zidane is ready to step down as Real Madrid manager.
Zidane has ended most of the season with an injury-ridden squad and is said to be frustrated with the available players at his disposal.
The LaLiga manager also believes he has been unfairly criticized for Real Madrid’s results this season.
He believes the squad’s injury status coupled with the hectic schedule following the coronavirus pandemic has caused their poor form this season.
Zidane was severely criticized for Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final elimination to Chelsea – when the LaLiga giants lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to crash out of the tournament.

Their European demise has contributed to Zidane’s sour feelings about the club in the current circumstances.
The report also added that the Frenchman is bored with his daily routine due to the limitations of Covid-19.
He is tired of the endless rounds of testing and strict protocols that have seen him ‘shower at home and prep work away from his players’, and also believes he is incapable of training a ‘star-studded squad’. the restrictions have removed the pleasure associated with the job.
Despite Zidane’s current feelings, the Real Madrid board remains ‘hopeful’ that they can convince the French manager to stay with the club next season.

Both sides are said to be negotiating the manager’s future, although Zidane has remained restrained when questioned at his pre-match press conferences.
Should Real Madrid fail to agree with Zidane, they will try to replace the legendary manager. Club legend Raul – who coaches the Castile side – has been touted as a possible replacement for the French.
Joachim Low – who runs away from the German national team after this summer’s European Championship – could replace Zidane. Ex-Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri would also be in the running for the LaLiga track.
