Zidane Out Conte In Speculation?
Despite winning the FIFA Club World Cup Final, speculation has emerged in the media that Zinedine Zidane could be replaced as the head-coach at the end of the season.
Seemingly, winning 5 trophies in 2017 and 8 since he took over the Real Madrid hot-seat back in January 2016, isn`t considered to be enough for the Frenchman to keep his job next season, for one exponent of the English tabloid media.
According to the English red-top publication, The Sun on Sunday, the fact that Zidane`s contract expires at the end of the 2017 / 2018 season, is reason enough for a replacement to be brought in.
And, in true red-top style, not only have they decided that Real Madrid will axe Zidane but they`ve also put forward the name of a reputed replacement.
Apparently, the man set to replace Zidane is the current manager of the reigning English Premier League title holders, Chelsea, namely Antonio Conte.
Surely a case of fictional as opposed to factual journalism don`t you think!
