Zidane happy to remain Madrid No. 2

Real Madrid assistant manager Zinedine Zidane insists he is in no rush to become a No. 1 in his own right and is expecting to stay at the Bernabeu next season.

Zidane, 41, has been cutting his coaching teeth at Madrid for the past couple of seasons, having initially taken up a more business-focused role following his retirement from playing in 2006.

The Frenchman, who won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 during a distinguished career, has regularly spoken about his desire to become a manager.

He was heavily linked with opportunities at Bordeaux and Monaco, but the former Madrid star insists he is happy with his current role alongside Carlo Ancelotti in the Spanish capital.

"Right now I'm here and I am going to continue at Real Madrid. We'll see what happens..." Zidane told Spanish television station La Sexta. "I'm enjoying my first experiences of coaching -- it's not quite the same as playing but I'm enjoying it."
