Real Madrid РLa Liga Following Copa exit

Marcelo Gallardo

Zinedine Zidane’s position at Real Madrid is in doubt after Wednesday’s humiliating Copa del Rey exit against Alcoyano.

The Frenchman remained typically calm in his post-match press conference, even when asked about his future on the bench.

But ESPN Argentina are reporting that Real Madrid already have River Plate boss Marcelo Gallardo as their current favourite to succeed Zidane as coach.

“I take responsibility and whatever has to happen will happen,” Zidane said after the game in Alcoy.

“We’ll see what happens in the next few days.”
