Concerned that Zinedine Zidane is under pressure as Real Madrid coach after a 4-1 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain. Zidane, who was the coach of Madrid for the third time after winning the Champions League title for the third time, set a record. Then, for a short time, Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari returned to Madrid again in March of this year, despite being the coach.
However, this time the ferret has not yet been pleasant. Under him, Madrid have won only five of their five matches so far. The Spanish giants were not fortunate to have six players replaced in the summer squad.
A club source told ESPN FC that board members feel the team is strong but unable to play according to their standards. Zidane is not worried about the fate of the club, though, after defeating PSG and starting the Champions League mission.
Madrid’s Eder Militao, Eden Hazard, Farland Mendy, Luca Jovic, Rodrigo and Alberto Sorro have been in the squad this summer. Bayern are also preparing to welcome Hamens Rodriguez, who has been playing in Munich for two years. However, Madrid failed to take on midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United. Prior to the start of the season, the star was the first choice for Zidane’s squad. The crisis, especially in the middle ground, has been worrying Madrid for quite some time.
The source added that some key players in the dressing room are beginning to believe that Zidane is ‘no more than before’. At the same time, many have expressed concern that he will be replaced by a new coach. It also hinted that Jose Mourinho’s name may have been on the list. Former Juventus boss Massimiliano Alegre was also on the list of potential candidates.
Madrid will face Sevilla in La Liga on Sunday. Then on Saturday, Madrid will face Osasuna in the middle of the week before tackling Athletico in the derby. Barcelona recently lost the draw with Osasuna.
