Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has, on Sunday, spoken out, amid the widespread speculation surrounding his future.

Los Blancos were of course back in action a short time ago.

The capital giants made the trip to the Basque country, for an absolutely crucial La Liga showdown with Athletic Bilbao.

Real Madrid still ‘very keen’ on Arsenal-linked Camavinga
