Zinedine Zidane has a pretty thankless task at Real Madrid.
It seems no matter what Zizou does, Los Blancos are never going to be quite content with him.
If winning the Champions League in his first half-season in charge wasn't enough, then being top of the league by two points isn't going to convince the club either.

President Florentino Perez is reportedly ready to give Real's managerial merry-go-round another spin, and it looks like he's already come up with some potential replacements.
Top of the list, reports the Mirror, is Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino, though the Lilywhites are going to put up one hell of a fight before they let him go.
The 44-year-old only signed a new five-year deal at Spurs earlier this year, but he's previously admitted he'd love to manage a top European side.
The Argentinian knows La Liga well, having started his managerial career with Espanyol. As Zidane has proven, though, no matter what you do at the Bernabeu, you'll probably end up with the sack regardless, so Pochettino might want to think carefully.
Zidane a ticking time bomb
Madrid appear to be impressed with the way the former Southampton boss has transformed Spurs from Europa League also-rans to title contenders, even if his side are currently without a win in five games.
For now, it's just a question of how long Zidane lasts in the hot seat. Since taking over from Rafael Benitez in January, he's masterminded Real's 11th Champions League win, while also running Barcelona close for the La Liga title last season.
Yet, Perez still has doubts about whether the World Cup winner is suitable in the long run, and it's likely his frosty relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo won't have done him many favours.
A Ronaldo hat-trick helped them to a 4-1 win over Alaves on Saturday, but it seems Zidane could find it difficult to keep his job regardless of what happens on the pitch.
