Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane who is currently under pressure says he is “going to fight right until my last day”.

Despite his side leading La Liga after seven games Zidane has been criticised, with Real under-performing in Europe.

Real, who fought back from two goals down to earn a first Champions League Group A point against Club Bruges on Tuesday, face second-placed Granada in La Liga at home on Saturday.

On his position, Zidane said: “I know where I am and that’s always the case.”

He added: “That’s what the role of a coach is like for all of us. I’m going to fight right until my last day because I enjoy what I do and feel as if I’m up to it.”

Real are one point ahead of promoted side Granada, who have already stunned champions Barcelona 2-0 this season.

Real remain unbeaten in the Spanish top flight, having won four and drawn three of their opening fixtures and – after two barren years domestically – Zidane said in April the league would be Madrid’s priority this season.

But apart from their win at Sevilla in September, Real have looked well below their fluent best, and suffered a humbling 3-0 defeat by Paris St-Germain in Europe.

On the criticism his team has received, Zidane added: “We’re not such a bad state as people outside of here say we are.

“This is Real Madrid and we’re focused on what we can do out on the pitch because we’ve now got a game where we can show why we’re top.

“We want to make sure we remain top at the final whistle. Tomorrow [Saturday] it’s first versus second and that means a lot. We know that we’re up against a side that are having a good season, just as we are.”

Real’s match against Granada begins at 15:00 BST on Saturday. Meanwhile, on Sunday, third-placed Atletico travel to Real Valladolid (15:00 BST) and champions Barcelona – in fourth – host Sevilla (20:00 BST).
