Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is a man under serious pressure ahead of the Champions League meeting with Turkish Super League giants Galatasaray on Tuesday night.

According to recent reports in the Spanish media, Zidane is under a lot of pressure to keep his job and a poor result against Galatasaray could lead to the end of his second spell as the Real Madrid manager.

Zidane has been heavily criticised for the majority of his tenure since he returned to the club in March this year.

The French football legend was first appointed as the Real Madrid manager in January 2016 as a replacement for Rafael Benitez.

He went on to win the Spanish La Liga title for the Los Merengues during the 2016/17 season as well as three successive Champions League titles.

Zidane won the Champions League title few months after he was appointed the Real Madrid boss.

The Frenchman resigned as the Real Madrid manager last summer after leading the Spanish La Liga giants to a third successive Champions League title.

Zidane was appointed the Real Madrid manager for the second time earlier this year but he has not been able to deliver results consistently like what was obtainable in his first spell.
