Zidane: There are plenty of games to play

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane insists his side's six-point lead at the summit of the Primera Division table "doesn't mean anything", ahead of their clash with Deportivo La Coruna.

Los Blancos are preparing to face Deportivo on Saturday night, before jetting off to Japan to participate in the FIFA Club World Cup.

However, Zidane is refusing to take his side's impressive La Liga form for granted, highlighting the fact there is a long way to go in the season.

When asked if he felt the league title had already been decided, Zidane told reporters: "I don't think La Liga [title] is decided.

"We're playing and happy with the results lately but we know that the road is still very long.

"There are plenty of games to play, lots of things we have to do to achieve what we want to achieve.

"The six-point advantage doesn't mean anything. We're ahead right now but that doesn't mean we're going to win the league."

Looking ahead to the Club World Cup in Japan, Zidane added: "It's true we have won many trophies in Japan.

"It's true Japanese fans love Real Madrid so much. It's a country we love and we want to write another page of history there, winning another important trophy.

"This Club World Cup is another trophy we can win. We'll have a game in La Liga on Saturday first, then we'll stay a week there and we'll do our best.

"We will do it, as always, for all those who won't be there, all those who support this great club. We will do our best for sure."
