Real Madrid, amid their shock Copa del Rey loss to Alcoyano, will not fire boss Zinedine Zidane, Goal says.
Zidane is understood to retain the full confidence of the board of the club.
Madrid was thrown out of the game against its third-tier rivals, meaning that within a week they missed two chances of eventual silverware.
In the Supercopa de Espana final, Athletic Club beat Zidane’s men courtesy of a 3-2 extra-time win.
Prior to that, in their last league outing, Los Blancos had been taken by Osasuna to a 0-0 draw and are now three games without a victory.
In the Spanish top-flight, four points distinguish them from table-topping neighbours Atletico Madrid, but Real have played two more games than Diego Simeone’s forces.
Zidane is conscious that if the results do not change, his place will be challenged, but he has the backing of the management of the club for now.
