"I want to win all remaining matches" - Zidane


(SOUNDBITE)(Spanish) REAL MADRID COACH ZINEDINE ZIDANE, SAYING: "I cannot tell you at this point that we are going to win La Liga.

I am not in that mindset.

What we do have to do, and this applies for all players and all people who work here, is to believe until the end.

And we have eleven matches ahead and what we want to do is to win all those eleven matches.

And then we will see what happens." STORY: Zinedine Zidane is set for his first match in charge of Real Madrid since being reappointed as Los Blancos head coach and has targeted victories in all their remaining games.

The former French international rejoined the Spanish giants on Monday (March 11) after Santiago Solari was sacked after less than five months in charge.

His first game in charge in his second managerial stint at the Santiago Bernabeu is against struggling Celta Vigo at home on Saturday (March 16).

Third-placed Real have 11 games remaining and are 12 points adrift of leaders and bitter foes Barcelona, and have already been knocked out of the Copa del Rey and Champions League.

Visitors Celta are in the relegation zone and head to the Spanish capital one point adrift of safety.

The 46-year-old, Zidane, led Real to a third straight Champions League triumph in May, beating Liverpool 3-1 in the final, before leaving his post.
