Antonio Conte set for Real Madrid job as Julen Lopetegui axe looms


Antonio Conte is leading the race to be there new manager of Real Madrid as Julen Lopetegui is on the verge of being sacked. Real Madrid were thrashed by Barcelona with a margin of 5-1 at Camp Nou on Sunday. After this huge defeat, it is almost confirmed that Julen Lopetegui is not going to continue his job his job as the manager of the Los Blancos for many days.

Antonio Conte has some legal issues with Chelsea FC. But it is seeming that the Italian manager will soon sort those to take over the charge of Real Madrid in the next few days. If the legal issue block the move of Antonio Conte to Real Madrid, they will likely to go for Santiago Solari for their new manager. Real Madrid are not looking very much comfortable in the field in this season without the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo. The new manager’s tactics are not suiting the players and that’s why Real Madrid are now at the tenth position in the League Table with 14 points from 9 matches.

Real Madrid were not able to get a single victory in the last four games in all competitions before the narrow win against Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League. Julen Lopetegui tried to act normal after the huge defeat in the El Clasico.


“I’m sad, it’s a tough blow, but I have strength to continue and the belief that things will improve.”

But it will be very much unlikely if Julen Lopetegui keeps his job at Real Madrid after such a poor start of the season.
