'A coach is as good as his last game' is a common saying in football circles and that theory is about to haunt one of the most successful coaches of late in European football, Zinedine Zidane.

Though the French coach was hitherto the toast of all at Real Madrid, the slump in form and dwindling fortunes of the reigning European champions has led to talks of getting a new replacement.

According to Don Balon, the Merengues president, Florentino Perez, is already thinking of next season and that might see the club move to hire Joachim Low to replace Zidane.

Zidane has two Champions League titles and that definitely ranks him among Europe’s best but the present reality is that his star-studded team are trailing their fierce rivals, Barcelona by a whole ten points.

It is understood that the Real Madrid President is very enthusiastic and wants to bring the German in next season, especially if the club doesn’t win either the Liga, the Copa del Rey or the Champions League.

Luckily, Low is reported to be favourably disposed to trying out with Real Madrid after the World Cup in Russia.
