Not happy with his role
Toni Kroos has added to the growing pressure for Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui.
The midfielder has hit out at the tactics employed by the former Spain manager.
Kroos has noted he thinks he’s playing too deeply at the minute.
Standard Sport report he said: “It’s a challenge to reverse this situation.
“We’ve shown we can do it. We’ve always had phases like these. It doesn’t worry me.
“I like playing deeper, but I’m not Casemiro.”
Pochettino and Mourinho suggestions
Real Madrid are notorious for being a hard club to manage, and coaches get sacked there more than most clubs.
Julen Lopetegui seems to be fighting for his job at Real Madrid already, and we make Mauricio Pochettino 5/2 favourite to be the next man in at the Bernabéu.

Both Jose Mourinho and Mauricio Pochettino have been linked with the Real Madrid job in recent days.

Replacing a manager who was loved by the fans and the players – and who won multiple trophies – was never going to be easy.
The fact Cristiano Ronaldo also left at the same time has obviously made it worse.
Real Madrid’s lack of goals at times this season has shone the spotlight on that even more.
