Real Madrid aren’t living the best moments right now, as Los Blancos look like a wandering team, with no identity. The latest example of this was their loss against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League opener, which has set the alarms on for Florentino Perez and his team.

As expected, Zinedine Zidane has received a lot of criticism for his team’s recent performances, and rumors are seeing the light claiming the Spanish giants are already looking for a replacement for the French boss. Some reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho is a candidate to take over Madrid, but Mou himself has ruled out a return to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid didn’t have a good season last year, and this one they haven’t had the best start, raising a lot of concerns among their fans. They want to see things get turned around quickly and don’t see with bad eyes a potential comeback of Mourinho.

However, the successful boss showed his class insisting that Real Madrid have a man in charge currently and he doesn't think about coming back.

“I would not like to return to Real Madrid because they have a coach, and he is not just anybody. My return to the bench will be when it will be,” he is quoted as saying by Mundo Deportivo.

Mourinho was great during his time with Los Blancos, but he always fell short in the Champions League, getting eliminated in three consecutive semi-finals before he left the club. The last time we saw him on the sidelines was with Manchester United, who sacked him last December.

Who knows, if Zidane doesn’t get to change things quickly, perhaps we could be seeing the Special One returning to the White House.
