Real Madrid fans want Jose Mourinho to replace Zinedine Zidane as manager


Real Madrid haven't made an ideal start to the 2019/20 season. 

After four La Liga fixtures, Los Blancos are third in the table, winning just two of their opening games. 

On top of that, Zinedine Zidane's side were well beaten by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night. 

Madrid lost 3-0, with Angel Di Maria coming back to haunt his former side. The Argentine scored twice in the first half before Thomas Meunier rounded off the scoring in added time.

It's not been the start many expected then, especially after a summer that saw the club spend over €300 million on new players. 

And the poor start means there's already speculation around Zidane's position.  

The Frenchman only returned to the Bernabeu in March, but his second stint in the dugout could last months, rather than years. 

It seems supporters are already pushing for a change, with some urging Florentino Perez to swing his axe. 


But who do fans want in the hotseat instead? Well, according to a poll run by Marca, Jose Mourinho is the preferred candidate. 

The Spanish paper asked the question to their readers, and a massive 44% want to see the 'Special One' back at Real. 

Former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri was supporters' second choice with 23% of the vote.

In third is club legend Raul Gonzalez, who picked up 21%. Just 12% of supports favour someone other than those three.  

It's surprising that so many want to see Mourinho return to Spain, given how he left Madrid six and a half years ago.

Despite being heavily linked, the Portuguese coach has played down any chance of a return.

"I wouldn't like to train Real Madrid because they already have a coach," Mourinho recently told Deportes Cuatro, per Marca.

"That's it. You can't train a team who already have a coach."
