While the pressure rises within the club Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo would have chosen the best replacement of Zidane, according to reports by the Spanish media Don Balon.
According to our colleagues Don Balon, Zidane’s stay with Real could be shortened and Cristiano Ronaldo, whose word has a lot of weight, would consider that Jurgen Klopp should be the ideal coach to replace the French.
Zidane had two outstanding seasons as Real Madrid coach, winning eight trophies. including the last two titles of the Champions League. However, this season is quite complicated for French.
With just nine wins in 17 league games, defending the La Liga title seems impossible. Real Madrid also suffered one of its most embarrassing defeats of the season against Barcelona last month. Real Madrid’s performance in the Champions League also leaves something to be desired. It is therefore not surprising that Zidane is under pressure.
A season without a trophy could lead to Zidane’s dismissal as club president Florentino Perez is anything but patient about the coaching position.
For his part, Klopp has shown that he bet on a direct and offensive game, a style of play that Ronaldo seems to enjoy. The superstar believes that the German would bring a sense of attack that is currently lacking at Real. The management of offensive players by Liverpool boss also gives Ronaldo hope.
But for now, Zidane still has time and another triumph in the Champions League could allow him to stay in Bernabeu. If not, we may see Klopp making his way to Real Madrid.
