Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has called a media conference at 1930 CET where he is expected to address rumours that Rafa Benitez’s job is at risk. Though it will be unfair on Benitez if he is sacked, but knowing Real Madrid, they are known to sack managers at will. With just 4 months into the season, sacking the manager would inject negative vibes into the players. Leave out the players, who else will be available to replace Rafa? Let us take a look at the list of possible candidates to replace Benitez at Real Madrid if he is sacked
A name that requires no introduction to the Football aficionados. Zidane, after his retirement, has set his sights on managerial career. First he was the assistant of Carlo Ancelotti in his first season and was replaced by his Real Madrid teammate Fernando Hierro for the Italian’s second season. Zidane was appointed as the coach at Real Madrid Castilla, where he is doing a splendid job. Perez will not have any second thoughts on having the Frenchman as the interim manager till the end of the season.
