Real Madrid Lining Up Pochettino to Replace Zidane
The midweek exit from the Copa del Rey, allied with the poor performance in La Liga, have seen Zinedine Zidane`s position come under increasing pressure.
Although the Frenchman led Real Madrid to a unique Champions League and La Liga double last season, the wheels have well and truly come off the wagon this season, with Real Madrid a staggering nineteen points of the pace in La Liga
To that effect, we`re, naturally, expecting speculation to appear in the media relating to the tenure of Zidane as the Real Madrid boss.
But the feeling is that, unless Zidane can orchestrate a dramatic turnaround in the clubs` fortunes, he could very well be heading for the exit come the summer.
If that is the case then the news source, the Daily Mail, could be hitting the nail on the head when it reports that Real Madrid have already identified a successor to Zidane.
Our referenced source is inferring that Real Madrid want Mauricio Pochettino, the current Tottenham Hotspur manager, as their next boss.
Furthermore, our aforementioned source also implies that Real Madrid have made an approach for the boss of the North London club.
But, what are your views on the subject matter?
Would you opt for Pochettino coming in to replace Zidane or would you give the Frenchman the time to turn this mess around?
