Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane confirmed on Saturday he will sign a contract extension in the near future with the club he has guided to back-to-back Champions League titles.

"I'm happy because it's a sign of confidence, that we have done good work," Zidane told a pre-match press conference ahead of Real's Spanish Super Cup showdown with Barcelona when quizzed on reports over his future.

Madrid sports daily AS reported the Frenchman will be rewarded with a three-year deal for his feats in not only delivering two Champions Leagues in just 20 months in charge, but also Real's first La Liga title for five years.

"I enjoy every day here," added Zidane, who ended his illustrious playing career at the Santiago Bernabeu. "I'm lucky to have this extraordinary squad and I am very happy with it."

Zidane added a sixth trophy to his collection when Madrid saw off Manchester United 2-1 to retain the UEFA Super Cup. However, he acknowledged that even his future would depend on maintaining his winning streak.

Zidane also admitted that "there aren't many players" with Neymar's individual qualities, but claimed his absence wouldn't give Madrid the upper hand over two El Clasico clashes.

"They have had changes but Barcelona are Barcelona. We know how they play and their idea isn't going to change," said Zidane. "Neymar isn't replaceable but there will be others that will do very well. If we think it is going to be easier tomorrow we will be mistaken."
