The French head coach of Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane may lose his post. The information was spread after the defeat in the match of the fifth round of the Champions League group stage against Shakhtar Donetsk.
According to Marca, today the trust in Zinedine Zidane is no longer expressed as it was before. Now many of his decisions are being questioned, so the fate of the mentor can be decided as early as this or next week.
On the evening of December 1, Real Madrid lost an away match against Shakhtar with a score of 0: 2 and dropped to third place in the Champions League standings. If the remaining matches against Sevilla and Atlético in the Spanish Championship, as well as against Borussia Mönchengladbach, are lost, then there is a risk of dismissal of Zinedine Zidane.
The AS reported that the management of “Real” will not fire Zidane, as the club does not doubt his candidacy. So far, changing the mentor is not on the agenda. Nevertheless, several players from the Real Madrid base believe that Zidane’s departure will benefit the club.
The possibility of dismissal of Zinedine Zidane was considered at the end of October 2020. This question was raised in the media after the defeat to the same Donetsk Shakhtar.
