Perez Targets Low if Zidane`s Axed
The 0-0 draw, in the Madrid derby against Atletico Madrid, has seen Real Madrid slip further behind Barcelona at the top of the La Liga table.
The gap between the two giants of Spanish football is now 10 points!
Although it is not an insurmountable gap, it is one that causes concern.
As a result of Real Madrid`s poor start to the season, speculation continues to circulate with regards to the continued tenure of Zinedine Zidane as the coach at the Bernabeu.
The latest inference, as published by the news source, the Express, infers that if Zidane is axed then a replacement is already on the radar.
Our referenced source is suggesting that Real Madrid will look at bringing Joachim Low to the club.
The 57-year-old would, on paper, appear to be a legitimate target however, the consensus of opinion is that although Florentino Perez would like the German to take over, luring away from his current position as the German national coach could be nigh on impossible.
Low, so it would seem, is intent on staying with the German side as they seek to retain the World Cup they won at Brazil 2014, as Russia 2018 fast approaches.
