Zidane vows he will not resign

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has insisted that he will not resign, despite another poor performance from his side in a 2-0 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk.

Madrid's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League last 16 are now in doubt after the match in Kiev, with second-half strikes from substitutes Dentinho and Manor Solomon giving the home side the victory.

The result completed a shocking double for the Ukranians over Zidane's side, with Shakhtar also defeating Madrid 3-2 in October's corresponding fixture.

Zidane is feeling the pressure after an indifferent start to the season, with Madrid now having lost three of their last five matches.
The Frenchman, however, has insisted that he will not be stepping down.

“I am not going to resign – not at all," he said following Tuesday's defeat.

“We have always had delicate moments. It is true that it is a bad streak in terms of results, but we must continue. Today was a final, we prepared very well, but we know there is a game to go and we have to win and that's it."

Zidane's side also fell at the weekend to Alaves and though he admitted his side deserved to lose that game, he felt that Madrid were unlucky to come away from Tuesday's match empty-handed.
