Zinedine Zidane admits being Real Madrid coach is exhausting as he faced questions about his future with the Spanish giants.

Zidane has won eight trophies in two years since taking the Madrid reins, including back-to-back Champions League and La Liga titles, but has found himself under increasing pressure following a poor run of results.

Wednesday's 3-1 European comeback win over Paris St-Germain earned the Frenchman a bit of breathing space, but he was quizzed once more about his long-term plans ahead of today's trip to Real Betis.

"For me the most important thing is what I'm doing now, the day to day. I'm not looking further than that," Zidane said.

"It's extremely tiring, for sure, and all the more so at Real Madrid. Of course the time could come when a change is needed, but that's the case for everyone, the players too."
