If one club sums up the feeling of chronic dissatisfaction, it’s Real Madrid.
In the past, Los Blancos have sacked Fabio Capello, Vincente del Bosque, and Bernd Schuster the season after winning the league.
Zinedine Zidane could be next to feel the ruthless axe of Florentino Perez – but AS claim he’ll only be shown the door if Real fail to win La Liga or the Champions League.
Zizou has had an impressive year and a bit at the Bernabeu, masterminding last year’s European success.
This time around, they face a tricky quarter-final against Bayern Munich, but as they lead Barcelona by two points in the league – and with a game in hand – they could still feasibly win the double.
It’s suggested that should the club end the season without either trophy, then Perez would like to replace Zidane with Arsene Wenger, of whom he is a long-term admirer.
Arsenal fans must have some sympathy with Madrid’s uncompromising demands for success, as it’s a trait they’d like to see from their own board.
Wenger’s trophy drought doesn’t seem to have deterred the Spanish giants. If he does become available this summer, which he might well if the Gunners miss out on the top four, then he may already have a club who’d be delighted to take him on.
