According to Marca, the future of Julen Lopetegui’s Real Madrid tenure rests on their game against Viktoria Plzen. The report suggests that only a win will see him remain in the job, whereas anything else will lead to his dismissal. The snowball effect of Lopetegui’s struggles over the last few months has led to many calling for his head, with the comparisons being made by many between him and Zinedine Zidane.
Regardless of what anyone thinks of him as a manager, everyone should be rooting for Lopetegui to pull something out of the bag – because he deserves to be given the chance to implement his own style.
You could argue he’s already been given more than enough time to do so, but if you compare the average stay for managers in the present day in comparison to twenty years ago, it’s a completely different ball game and there’s no way of denying that.
