Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly considering bringing back in their former manager Jose Mourinho in an attempt to rescue their season.
Zinedine Zidane’s team have had an uncharacteristic start to their season so far and their bid to retain their title took another hit after the club’s shock loss to Girona.
The legendary Frenchman has led his side to plenty of silverware in recent seasons and has been widely praised for his incredible start to his career as a manager.
Well known for his glory days as a footballer, many questioned his ability to lead his former side with no real prior experience.
However, Zidane stepped up and dismissed all the criticism thrown at him with an impressive run of silverware that has even left the club’s trigger happy president satisfied.
Don Balon are the ones making the extraordinary claim that Florentio Perez is considering replacing the former Juventus man.
Although they admit Zinedine’s place is under no real threat at the moment, Perez may have his hand forced should their be no upturn in form.
The club’s poor start to the season has left them in third, eight points behind arch rivals Barcelona who have remained unbeaten so far.
The report though is highly unusual given the circumstances Mourinho left Real Madrid in when he returned to Chelsea.
The Portuguese tactician has also previously stated his desire to remain in England for the foreseeable future and it’s unlikely to see that change anytime soon.
Halfway through his project of turning Manchester United in champions, Jose will not wish to leave a job unfinished.
