A source close to Zinedine Zidane has suggested that the Real Madrid is too inexperienced to replace Carlo Ancelotti as the club’s coach this summer.
The Italian manager is coming under ever-increasing scrutiny at the Bernabeu and his position appears to be precarious as the season comes to an end.
Despite winning La Decima last season—Real’s tenth European Cup—Ancelotti has again failed to lift the Spanish title this season, while the club’s hopes of retaining the Champions League were ended when they were defeated on aggregate by Juventus in the semi-final.
Zidane, currently a member of Ancelotti’s backroom staff, has been tipped to replace the former Chelsea and Milan coach in the Real hotseat.
However, according to a source close to the club legend, Zizou is not yet ready to take the top job in the Spanish capital.
“He is still too green,” said the source, speaking to L’Equipe [via Le 10 Sport], “and not experienced enough for this post.”
The likes of Andre Villas-Boas, Rafael Benitez, Michel, Unai Emery and Joachim Low have all been tipped for the Real hotseat. However, the favourite remains Jurgen Klopp, who has confirmed that he is leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer.
