“The team's defeat in Kiev, the fifth in just 16 games this season, leaves the coach in a delicate situation. The figure of Zidane has a credit that he has earned than his predecessors in office, but if the situation does not improve, neither is Zidane safe.
“Madrid does not want to go to that extreme, aware that managing the dismissal of a very beloved figure among Real Madrid is not an easy task, but it is a scenario that is no longer ruled out and that is why there are two names in the bedroom in case the club is forced to press the red button: Mauricio Pochettino , the great candidate, and more in the distance Raúl González, now in charge of Castilla,” said the report.
