Being the captain of any club is something that not many players are actually suited of doing as this is the person that the team will be looking at when the results are not necessarily going in favor of the club.
Sergio Ramos is in a particularly difficult position in Real Madrid as the Spanish defender was outspoken when it came to finding a replacement of ZinedineZidane as the veteran player voted in favor of JulenLopetegui but so far it has been a disappointing period of time for the successor of Zidane.
After having played 9 La Liga matches, Real Madrid are positioned in the 7th spot which is very surprising and underwhelming especially for the club that are the current champions of the UEFA Champions League but have recently lost league matches against Alaves, Levante and Sevilla.
It’s because of these recent mediocre results that JulenLopetegui is under fire and rumored to be on the edge of being sacked if the upcoming results don’t start turning in favor of Real Madrid.
KarimBenzema, Marcelo and Sergio Ramos are some of Real Madrid’s stars that have been vocal involving their support towards Lopetegui and want the 52 year old tactician to remain in charge despite these forgettable scores but they don’t have the final say regarding the future of JulenLopetegui as this will mostly depend on the upcoming results of Real Madrid and especially about their score against their rivals Barcelona in a La Liga match which is scheduled to take place on October 28.
There already are rumors going on involving possible replacements of Lopetegui and one of those is Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho.
