Spanish giants, Real Madrid, having lately put up poor performances since the beginning of the season, the club has been reported to be eyeing two potential managers to replace Zinedine Zidane, should a certain defeat fall on them in the Champions League yet again.
The Madrid giants was handed their first Champions League defeat by Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes in the European game opener a game highlighted as the bet of the day. Zidane’s team was then held at the Santiago Bernabeu to a 2-2 draw against Club Brugge in their second game after Thibaut Courtois blunders, which leaves them little of hope of qualifying for the next round of the European competition.
This means, Zidane will have to carefully think about his tactics for his team for the next Champions League game as there should be no room for mistakes if the club wishes to qualify for the round of 16.
Right after the international break, the Los Blancos was handed an unexpected defeat by Mallorca in their last La Liga match, which immediately sees rival Barcelona jump to the top of the table. Most predictions in football and betting odds didn’t expect Madrid to sufer a loss against the islanders.
Those two defeats, reports have it that pressure will be building up on the French manager, whose team have been expected to improve after making major signings during the summer, but with little improvements made the head coach is still on the verge of losing his job as Madrid manager.
Report coming from Spanish outlet, Mundo Deportivo, claims that another defeat in the Champions League might very well confirm the future of the French manager with the Los Blancos.
The report further stated that Madrid have been keeping close tabs on former manager Jose Mourinho and former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri as two potential targets, who could take Zidane’s seat at the Santiago Bernabeu, should he ever be sacked.
Allegri, who is said to be on a break from football, parted ways with the Italian giants last summer as he was replaced Mahrizio Sarri. Allegri tactics as a manager is in no doubt as he made a name for himself when he managed AC Milan before moving onto the Bianconeris, where he the league five consecutive times.
While, Mourinho was put out of work since last December by Manchester United. The Portuguese is the most likely to get the seat as he is very familiar with the Los Blancos, having coached the Spanish team in his early years, and could very well return club to her glory days.
