​Former Real Madrid midfielder Guti has claimed that the Champions League is Real Madird's last chance to win a title this season but is hoping that manager Zinedine Zidane is not sacked even if the Los Blancos lose.


Zidane has led the club to two Champions League and the La Liga title since joining in 2016 but this season, he has seen his side under-perform domestically, leading to reports that he could be sacked before the end of the season.


Guti, who played alongside Zidane when the duo starred for the club, is of view that the Frenchman must not be let go of even if Real Madrid fail to get past Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. Guti also stated that he himself would, one day, want to manage the Spanish club.



Speaking to El Chiringuito de Jugones, as reported by ​Marca, Guti said, "This is the last chance for Real Madrid, but I hope there is sanity and that it isn't Zidane's last chance. We cannot forget what he has done. It is also PSG's last chance as it isn't worth winning Ligue 1 or the French Cup. Zidane must continue, but how can I not want to coach Real Madrid one day?"


The Los Blancos legend, who is currently in charge of their C team, also spoke about ​Neymar's potential move to the Bernabeu, though he added that it would not mean the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.


Guti said, "I like Neymar, but if that means Ronaldo leaving, then no. At Real Madrid you have to be the best in the world and Neymar is. I think he is more motivated and I think he will continue to be so. He knows that he won't come to a better place. I think Neymar will go to Real Madrid. Who knows if [Karim] Benzema will be the one who goes to PSG. I think Ronaldo will continue here though."



Real Madrid host their French opponents tomorrow in Madrid and will be looking for a win as they look to win the competition for the third consecutive year. Guti, who won the Champions League thrice, called on Ronaldo and Karim Benzema to perform for the hosts.


He added, "It isn't the year to think about the Champions League, but they will try hard and surely they will be in the final. Ronaldo has to be decisive, as he was last year when he led the team to the final. Benzema must forget about the fans' whistles. Over 180 minutes, PSG are a great team. Surely it won't finish eleven against eleven."


Real Madrid face their biggest test of the campaign tomorrow when they host high-flying PSG tomorrow in Madrid, with the second leg set to take place three weeks later in Paris,.
