The pressure on Zidane was reduced after Madrid crushed Barcelona 3-1 at the Camp Nou last weekend. Previously, the French coach was believed to be under threat of dismissal after Los Blancos suffered two consecutive defeats from promoted LaLiga teams, Cadiz, 0-1 and Shakhtar Donetsk 2-3 in the first match of the Champions League.
It is reported that Real Madrid bosses have started to think about new coach candidates in case they have to part with Zidane. They are Mauricio Pochettino or Raul Gonzalez, a Madrid legend who now manages the Castilla team.
Zidane is said to have been given the opportunity to save his job in certain competitions. Borussia Moenchengladbach, Wednesday (28/10/2020), it is a must-win match for Real Madrid.
Madrid’s top midfielder and senior player Toni Kroos did not want to bother with the criticism facing his coach. However, it is clear that Kroos cs is still behind Zidane.
“For us players, there is never a doubt with Zidane,” Kroos said on AS. “We lost and won together.”
“When things go wrong it is easy to say there are a lot of doubts, but the result of El Clasico shows nothing like that. If you play for Madrid you have to take criticism when you suffer defeats.”
