Alquiano’s team, which competes in the third division, exploded the biggest surprises of the season after it ousted Real Madrid from the King’s Cup, winning 2-1 in the match that brought them together on Wednesday evening, in the 32nd round of the tournament.
The Spanish league champions fell 1-2 after the extension, despite the humble team completing the last minutes of the second extra half with ten men.
The royal team’s counter stopped when Yateem won the last 5 matches in various competitions, which raised pressure on his coach and former star.
Zidane ignites the anger of the Real Madrid administration
According to the Spanish newspaper “Sport”, the management of the royal club is very angry because of the disastrous performance of the team during the match, especially since the Meringue said farewell to two championships in less than a week.
The newspaper added that the loss of the Spanish Super Cup, and the humiliating exclusion from the King’s Cup, prompted the management of the royal club to seriously consider overthrowing the French coach before the start of the Champions League final eighth round.
The Spanish newspaper said that the very modest levels that the team showed during the current season in various competitions led to the management losing confidence in Zidane, and the Alcoiano match was a knockout blow to the French coach’s relationship with Florentino Perez, the club’s president.
“Sport” indicated that Raul Gonzalez is the name closest to Zidane’s succession in the event the Meringue management decided to overthrow the French coach during the next few days.
Real Madrid’s elimination from the Copa del Rey came a week after they were knocked out of the semi-finals of the Super Cup at the hands of Athletic Bilbao 1-2. The Meringue is also currently ranked second in the league, 4 points behind its leaders Atletico Madrid, but he has played two more games, while he is 3 points ahead of his rivals Barcelona, who had a bad start in the league.
Real Madrid’s exit came in front of Alcoyano, who had not been in the first division since 1951, and his stadium accommodated less than five thousand spectators, but his fans were absent due to the repercussions of the new Corona virus.
