Real Madrid fans hold up banner directed at Jose Mourinho during Eibar loss

Real Madrid fans showed their support for Jose Mourinho during Eibar loss

Santiago Solari's good start to life as Real Madrid manager ended on Saturday.

The Spanish manager had won each of his first four games at the helm, with his side scoring 15 goals and conceding twice in that time frame.

Their improved form meant they went into their game against Eibar this weekend as the heavy favourites.

However, they suffered a dismal 3-0 defeat at Estadio Municipal de Ipura.

Solari was given the job on a temporary basis when Julen Lopetegui left his post in October.

He has since been named permanent coach, although some may be having doubts about him following the embarrassing defeat this weekend.

But, if they are to hire a more experienced manager, who could Los Blancos go for?

One name that will be of interest to Madrid will be Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese boss has managed at the club before, winning the La Liga title and two other major honours during his three season spell earlier this decade.

He could also be a free agent very soon given his current struggles at Manchester United.

But what do Madrid fans think? Do they want him back?

A banner was held up during the Eibar game that highlights at least a few Madrid fans would take him back in a heartbeat.

The banner which was held up supporting Mourinho simply says: 'Come back soon', with an image of his face alongside.

Even behind that banner, there is a fan holding up a scarf which reads 'Jose Mourinho: The special one'.

Interesting. Some may interpret that is quite surprising, mind.

During his three season spell at the club Mourinho won the league just once.

He was also unable to win the Champions League and left after his third season with Madrid finishing 15 points behind Barcelona in La Liga.

Given his current failings at Man United, it could be argued that Mourinho is not the manager he once was.

But, regardless, it seems at least a few Madrid fans want to see him back at the club.
