Zinedine Zidane out? Fernando Hierro calls for calm at Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane out? Fernando Hierro calls for calm at Real Madrid

According to reports, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is one of the men who could possibly succeed Zinedine Zidane as manager of Real Madrid next season. The Yellow Submarine did lose star striker Cedric Bakambu, but they've got plenty of quality throughout the squad and head to Santiago Bernabeu in good spirits.

Despite being off the pace in La Liga, Real have made it through to the knockout phase of the Champions League and are into the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Los Blancos legend Figo is backing Zidane.

However, he has endured a tough season with his side now 16 points behind Barcelona in Spain's LaLiga. With two of their last three meetings at the Bernabeu ending all squared (1-1, 1-1), Villarreal should definitely not be written off.

The only new arrivals were youngsters Theo Hernandez, Dani Ceballos and Diego Llorente, who have barely featured this season as Zidane's faith in the so-called "B" team that did so well last season has faded.

That leaves Carlos Bacca to lead the attack, while Enes Unal, who returned from loan with Levante with a goal last week, and new arrival Roger Martinez will probably await their chances from the bench.

Inter Milan ace Mauro Icardi has been linked with a big money January move to Madrid. I can not look two or three years ahead because having the contract does not mean anything."We're always going to get criticism but we're going to try to change this situation", he said.On Wednesday, as if to emphasize results are not going the way of the glamor club, Real drew 2-2 at home to second division Numancia the the second-leg of their Copa del Ray quarterfinal clash - they won the first-leg 3-0.

Important midfielder Manu Trigueros returns from suspension, but Roberto Soriano, Bruno Soriano, Andres Fernandez, Ruben Semedo and Leonardo Suarez remain sidelined. "It's pretty to talk negatively about Real Madrid, it sells more". Looking at their previous meetings in Madrid, we expect the trend of low-scoring games to continue.
