Real Madrid will not think twice about relieving Zinedine Zidane from his duties if they go without a trophy this season in case football resumes.

There is absolutely no clarity over when and if football will resume this season, but Real Madrid are optimistic about things going ahead as are many other clubs and players.

Los Blancos are currently battling for two trophies and will be giving their all in La Liga as well as the UEFA Champions League but it must be noted that they are second favourites for both.

Real Madrid were doing an absolutely fantastic job in La Liga but a string of inconsistency cost them top spot to Barcelona.

More from Real Madrid

Beating their arch-rivals in El Clasico saw the Merengues go back to first place but a subsequent loss to Real Betis threw a hapless Madrid side back to second place with just eleven matches of the season to spare.

In the Champions League, Los Blancos will be chasing a 2-1 deficit to Manchester City at the Etihad whenever the competition resumes but will need to do so without their captain Sergio Ramos. That only makes the task all the more difficult, and if the Whites are to go without silverware this season, Zidane may receive his marching orders.

Don Balon has claimed that Florentino Perez has already talked to Mauricio Pochettino who could be a likely replacement.

The Argentine boss was fired by Tottenham Hotspur rather unfairly and has always been on the 13-time European champions’ radar. For the Spanish giants this definitely is an advantage because they don’t have to negotiate with Daniel Levy.

Mauricio Pochettino’s appointment would be openly welcomed at the Santiago Bernabeu and even if the coach has not won anything as yet, he will be coaching a side with much hungrier and ambitious players.

Furthermore, his arrival into the dugout could see Perez’s outlet become the favourite to sign Harry Kane, who has hinted at a Spurs departure.
