Reports reaching us indicate that Spanish Giants Real Madrid have sacked Rafa Benitez as manager.

Florentino Perez who is the owner of Los Blancos is said to be displeased with the recent poor form of the club as they have now slipped to third and four points behind
league leaders Atletico Madrid.

Benitez who has also coached English
clubs Liverpool and Chelsea has endured a tough season at the Bernabeu since taking over in June 2015, having fall-outs with some key players of the club.

Their 2 – 2 draw against Valencia simply forced the management to take the crucial decision.

However, team assistant coach, Zinedine Zidane is expected to take over.
A top source to the club revealed that the three-time world footballer of the year prefer a summer change but won’t turn down the chance to manage the ten-time
European champions.

Revered Spanish football expert Guillem Balague spoke with Sky Sports and suggested that club president
Florentino Perez might have lost confidence in Benitez many weeks ago.

He said: “ Perez often says the opposite things privately.
Over the last few weeks, he’s been saying Benitez is not the problem, he’s the solution. That’s what he said publicly.

“At the same time, he held a poll before Christmas with season ticket holders on who they would like as a replacement. He was was just waiting for the right
moment to do what seems inevitable.

“It’s quite clear Benitez doesn’t have the confidence of the board or Perez. Perez wants Jose Mourinho to come back, there is no doubt about it, but if he did that right
now he’ll have to get rid of five or six players, as some of the big players at Real Madrid do not want Jose Mourinho back.

“So how Florentino Perez sort that out? I don’t know. It won’t be now, it won’t be for a while. Who he is trying to convince is Zidane, but Florentino is not 100 per cent
convinced that Zidane himself is the solution.

“So with no clear alternative, all that debate is happening at board level, and with Florentino and his entourage.”

The club is expected to an official announcement soon.
