strange clutch issue

Hy guys,

I have a very strange clutch issue. This morning started the car and when I pressed the clutch pedal it went to the floor ... I've put the tip of my shoe under it and the pedal immediately went up and didn't have any problem while driving to work. Had this problem before and replaced the slave cylinder two weeks ago (since it wasn't replace 6 months ago when I did the clutch) and the problem is still there. The master cylinder was replaced 2 years ago with a SACHS part.
I know that is a hydraulic clutch, maybe some air is trapped into the system?
Where should I start looking for issues ?

Give it a bleed first, then I'd check the master cylinder, couple of people have reported one failing after the other.

Thanks for the advice, had a very busy weekend. I'll give it a bleed today and see if it improves.
