Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos expects Zinedine Zidane to continue as the club's manager next season.

Zidane is now in his second stint as the Real Madrid manager and has been in the position since March 2019, less than a year after he had announced resignation from the same post.

After a largely disappointing 18-19 season, Real Madrid won the La Liga and Supercopa de Espana titles the following campaign under the tutelage of the Frenchman.

Real Madrid have not won any titles this season, but they could claim the La Liga and Champions League titles before the campaign draws to a close. Los Blancos sit second in the La Liga points table, and they could usurp leaders Atletico Madrid and retain the league title.

The Spanish behemoths are also in the race to win the Champions League, with the 13-time winners of the competition one step away from the final, having played out a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the semi-final first leg.

And, Kroos, who has been one of Madrid's key players, expects Zidane to continue as the Real Madrid boss next season. "I think he'll be our coach next season. He has a contract," the German midfielder said ahead of the club's Champions League second leg clash.
