The Real Madrid does not raise head and in the club already begin to signal to Zinedine Zidane​ at most responsible. The French trainer went back to the team does months and still has not attained to give with the key. The merengues do not play to at all, do not know to what want to play and tácticamente are a disaster. The defeat in Paris has put to the Frenchman against the ropes and already speaks of possible substitutes.

To 'Zizou' still remains him credit, but if the Madrid does not improve in the next two weeks could finish in the street. Florentino Pérez already has alternatives in his head and the trainer that more would seduce him, according to Sportive World, would be Xabi Alonso. The donostiarra, nevertheless, left this summer of the quarry of the white group to direct to the filial of the Real Sociedad.

The president madridista thinks that was an error of the club leave that the ex mediocentro went . For him, Xabi was the young technician with more qualities and future that there was in the Madrid, by in front even of Raúl González. The ex captain merengue has commissioned this course of the Castilla and could be one of the alternatives to Zidane, but Florentino prefers to the Basque.

Xabi Alonso has a profile of distinct technician to Zidane and is therefore by what to the maximum white mandator likes him so much. Always it has been a leader in the field, has character and like player tácticamente was a delight. Florentino trusts that like trainer also was a studious of the game and thinks that could be the indicated for the place in the future. It does not be necessary to forget that it was disciple of two of the best trainers of the history: Guardiola and Mourinho.

Mourinho, favourite in the short term

But as they are the things, hire to Xabi could be a too risky movement if Zidane finish in the street. Retell with an inexperienced technician for all a Madrid is not the most advisable and is therefore by what the president thinks in another ex madridista. José Mourinho could be the big alternative to the French for this same year.

The Portuguese does not have team, has spare experience, knows the club, historically is a winner and especially has the hard hand that seems that it is missing him to 'Zizou'. The staff needs to reactivate and Mou could be a good candidate to do it. His arrival to Santiago Bernabéu could be question of months or even of weeks if the Madrid of Zidane does not improve in the weeks to come.
