Tottenham Hotspur v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League

Could Real Madrid really axe Zinedine Zidane?

Bookmakers believe that Real Madrid could be about to pull the trigger on Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane, a legend as both player and coach with the Spanish giants, has guided them to back-to-back European titles – the first team to do so in the Champions League era.

But Madrid are currently going through one of the worst runs of form in years – which saw them lose to lowly Girona at the weekend before losing 3-1 to Tottenham at Wembley.

They sit third in La Liga and eight points behind arch-rivals Barcelona, and pressure is mounting.

“It is probably only because of who he is that he Zinedine Zidane is still in a job, the powers that be at Real Madrid are not known for being patient,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“He is now getting very short to be sacked this season, and is around 6/4 across the board – at the start of the season it was barely thinkable that he would be in this position.

“Off the back of this we have the next manager market at Real, and former boss Carlo Ancelotti is favourite but Maurcio Pochettino – the man who oversaw their loss at Wembley is already being backed into second favourite at 11/2.

“If you fancy a long-shot – how about Cristiano Ronaldo becoming player manager at 14/1!”

Real Madrid odds:
Zinedine Zidane to be sacked before the end of the season – 6/4

Who will replace Zinedine Zidane?
Ancelotti 7/2
Pochettino 11/2
Wenger 15/2
Blanc 17/2
Mancini 17/2
Klopp 17/2
Jardim 11/1
