The future of Julen Lopetegui on the bench of Real Madrid is all present. The past is a slab and the future is uncertain. Very uncertain In the white club they meditate which time is less harmful for the team to get rid of the coach. On Saturday, after the defeat against Levante, it was thought that we had to take a margin, see things with perspective, think that there are two games this week, the last at the Camp Nou, and that we had to think carefully and calmly. decision. Today, again, they have returned to spin the dismissal of the coach, which increasingly seems closer and inevitable … But it will not be today. Tomorrow, at 11 o'clock in the morning the training of Real Madrid is scheduled and either the dismissal takes place very soon and Solari is asked to take charge of the first team or Julen will direct it. On Tuesday, at the Bernabéu, Madrid hosts Viktoria Plzen, the weakest opponent of their Champions League group and then there are five days before Sunday's game in Barcelona. Those are going to be decisive for the future and seem propitious to say goodbye to a coach who has not given what was expected. As the hours pass, the bets to arrive on Sunday to face Barcelona without Messi, are against him.
The five games without a win are too heavy for a coach who came with the goal of changing the style of play, making it more attractive, but that has been halfway, without colorful football, but also without results. And if the first can happen, the second is unforgivable. Madrid have lost against very inferior team: CSKA, Alavés and Levante, teams much lower than those that would have to win without excuses and to which Madrid has only scored one goal. Denied before the goal and without solutions to avoid that block, the coach's solutions have not brought anything but confusion. You may have run out of time to fix it.
