Real Madrid have actually supposedly recognized Mauricio Pochettino and Raul as potential replacements for existing head coach Zinedine Zidane if the team’s bad run of form continues.
Zidane provided the La Liga title last season, however the pressure is currently on the Frenchman after frustrating beats to Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk in the league and Champions League respectively.
Madrid are next in action away to Barcelona on Saturday afternoon, and a bad result in El Clasico would even more magnify the speculation surrounding the former midfielder’s future.
According to AS, Pochettino remains in the frame to change Zidane, with the Argentine, who has also been linked with Manchester United, still readily available in spite of leaving Tottenham Hotspur nearly 12 months ago.
The report declares that Raul – currently in charge of Real Madrid Castilla – is also being thought about.
The 43-year-old scored 323 goals in 741 appearances for the capital giants in between 1994 and 2010, winning 6 La Liga titles and 3 Champions League prizes during his time as a player at the Bernabeu.
Madrid have won 3, lost 2 and drawn among their 6 competitive matches this season.
