It looks like Zinedine Zidane could be living his last days as Real Madrid boss given the last results of the club both in Spain and Europe. The Frenchman isn’t having the same success he had during his first stint with the club, and now fans are asking the board to change something if they want to be successful again.

Madrid lost against Mallorca on Saturday, losing the first spot of the La Liga standings at the expense of Barcelona. Real are still in second place and find themselves only one point off the pace, but it still feels like Zidane is constantly under pressure.

That’s why the club has started to look for replacements for Zizou since his numbers aren’t the best. Santiago Solari and Rafa Benitez were ridiculed and forced out quickly, but the stats show the Zidane is actually doing worse than both of them.

According to AS, Zidane’s win percentage places him as the second-worst manager of the last decade, only behind Julen Lopetegui who only managed to win four of his ten games in charge.

After the game with Barcelona was postponed next weekend, now a bad result in Turkey away to Galatasaray could be the end of Zidane in front of Madrid. This would give the club nearly two weeks to get a replacement in and give them a chance to work with the players before their next game.

Jose Mourinho and Massimiliano Allegri are linked with a move to Madrid, with the Portuguese already preparing to take the reins of the club once again provided that Real don’t show any sign of improvement in the next game.
