Zinedine Zidane future

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane at the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid on May 28,.2016

The future of Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane looks uncertain after they fell to their fourth league defeat of the season at home to Villarreal.

The defending champions now incredibly find themselves closer to the La Liga relegation zone than leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona, who have opened up a 19-point advantage over Los Blancos.

Zidane took charge of Madrid in January 2016 and has already won eight trophies, including one La Liga title and back-to-back Champions League crowns - the first manager to achieve that in the modern era.

However, Madrid's record this season is significantly worse than the one which led his predecessor Rafael Benitez to be sacked and club president Florentino Perez is understood to be considering the Frenchman's future at the Bernabeu.
