Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is currently under huge pressure at the Santiago Bernabeu following Los Blancos humiliating Copa Del Rey exit to minnows Alcoyano who play in the Spanish third tier, meaning that Real have won the competition just twice in the last 22 years.
The former France World Cup winner’s second spell at managing Real has been much less successful than his first, as in his first three seasons in charge of Los Blancos, he managed to win the Champions League three times, as well as the La Liga title, a Supercopa de Espana, two UEFA Super Cups and two Club World Cups.
Zidane’s current spell has seen Real win La Liga again as they did so last season, as well as the Supercopa de Espana. However, the squad he inherited from his last spell has aged badly, and the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in between the two spells has further exacerbated problems for Real, as he was key in much of the Frenchman’s success. Zidane has often struggled to get the best of the current Real side.
