Zidane 4/1 for Real Madrid axe; Spurs boss Pochettino 11/2 for the job

| 21.11.2017

Zinedine Zidane could pay with his job following Real Madrid’s disastrous start to the season.

Los Blancos are already 10 points behind Barcelona in La Liga and are not yet guaranteed qualification in the Champions League.

With pressure mounting on Zizou, we’ve priced up the Frenchman up at 4/1 for a shock exit from the Bernabeu.

Of course, if the former Galactico does vacate his position at Real, we could be set for an almighty scramble for one of the most prized jobs in football.

As things stand, ex-Real manager Carlo Ancelotti leads the way as the most likely replacement at 7/2.

However, the name on most people’s lips is Mauricio Pochettino at 11/2.

The Tottenham Hotspur boss has long been tipped for what would surely be a career-defining role.

Meanwhile, Laurent Blanc is a 17/2 shot, with Arsene Wenger rounding out the leading quartet at 8/1.

You can also get 25/1 on a sensational Bernabeu return for current Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Real Madrid chiefs are hardly known for their patience and our traders reckon they could call time on Zidane’s spell if things don’t improve soon.”
