Jose Mourinho has been linked in the Spanish media with a return to Real Madrid

Spanish media have reported that Real president Florentino Perez would be keen to recruit former coach Mourinho should Zidane be relieved of his duties.

That defeat has led to fresh questions about his future, with the Madrid board rumoured to be considering swapping Zidane for former boss Mourinho. We have to give them time off.

Zidane has come under serious pressure after his team lost 3-0 to Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

"If I read the press, it says I'm gone", he said during the club's weekly press conference. I think the club helps us all to be strong and supports all the people that work here.

"If it weren't like this, it'd be better to leave".

"I have a very good memory of every club I've been at and always try to remember the positive things".

"Three points are up for grabs tomorrow and that should be motivation enough for us even though we know what it means to face Real Madrid", he said.

"We must give everything we can to win the game", he said. "Things look ugly at the moment but you have to keep working".

However, Kaka who won a domestic league title with Madrid in 2011-12 and the Copa del Rey a season earlier, noted the expectation around Santiago Bernabeu. Jose Mourinho could be in luck if it is.

On the speculation that Hazard can not compete with Lionel Messi for the Liga limelight in the way that Cristiano Ronaldo did during his spell at Madrid, Kaka added: "I think we were lucky to watch these two players (Messi and Ronaldo) playing in a battle against each other". Here, you lose one game and everything changes. "It's hard but it's the reality".
