  • Shakhtar vs Real Madrid: Zidane speaks on resigning after failing to qualify

  •  


    Zinedine Zidane has vowed to fight on as Real Madrid manager, after a 2-0 Champions League defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk left their chances of qualifying for the round of 16 in serious doubt.

    Substitutes Dentinho and Manor Solomon scored in the second half, as Los Blancos were beaten for the second time by the Ukrainians.

    Zidane's men lost 3-2 in the reverse fixture at home in October.

    The result in Kiev put Shakhtar level on points with Madrid.

    The final matchday on December 9 sees Madrid welcome group leaders Monchengladbach, and Shakhtar travel to Inter.

    "No. Not at all. I won't resign," Zidane said in his postmatch news conference, when asked if he was considering his future.

    "We'll keep going. In the first half we were really good. I think we deserved to score first, that would have changed things. Their goals hurt us a lot."

    Madrid have now lost five of their last 10 matches in all competitions.
