Real Madrid look set to sack their second manager of the season in the coming days, following a disastrous 4-1 loss to Ajax which saw them flop out of the Champions League.
After four straight home losses, the writing’s on the wall for Santiago Solari. And he could soon be replaced by a very familiar face.
Our traders make Jose Mourinho the odds-on favourite to take the job at 3/4. The Portuguese gaffer won La Liga and the Copa Del Rey during his previous stint in charge, from 2010-13.
However, Tottenham Hotspur fans could still be biting their fingernails. That’s because Mauricio Pochettino is 10/3 to sack off Spurs for the Santiago Bernabeu.
Next up are a trio of Zinedine Zidane, Joachim Low and Antonio Conte all at 7/1.
Among the dark horses, Arsene Wenger is 10/1 to make his first ever foray into Spanish football as the next Real gaffer.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Does Mourinho have unfinished business in the Spanish capital? The odds suggest Solari will soon be replaced by Real’s former boss.”
