Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane’s future at the club is in doubt and it seems that the Spanish Giants are being linked with Mauricio Pochettino as a potential replacement.
The former Tottenham manager is a free agent right now and he could prove to be a quality alternative if Zidane is relieved of his duties.
The Spanish giants have lost their last two games against Cadiz and Shakhtar.
They will be up against Barcelona, in the El Clasico, this weekend and it will be interesting to see if Real Madrid can turn their form around with the win here.
A third straight defeat could put Zidane under more pressure.
Club president Florentino Perez believes that Zidane is the right man to lead the Real Madrid dressing room for now but that perception could soon change if results do not improve in the coming weeks.
A club like Real Madrid are expected to win every game and challenge for every trophy.
They will be expected to defend their Spanish league title and do well in the Champions League this year.
Real Madrid will be hoping to establish their title credentials with a win over Barcelona this weekend and it will be interesting to see if they can get the three points against their arch-rivals.
If Zidane fails to get the team performing in the coming weeks, Pochettino could be the ideal man to rebuild the Spanish giants. Several Real Madrid players are in the twilight years of their career now and they need to rebuild the club with young and talented players.
