Santiago Solari has refused to offer any updates on his future at Real Madrid and insists he will give his all to turn their fortunes around, amid talk that he will be sacked this weekend.
That followed the ignominy of consecutive defeat to bitter rivals Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-finals and La Liga that means Madrid are nearly certain to miss out winning a domestic or European trophy for the first time since 2015. Mourinho is unpopular with some of the players and staff at the club from his last tenure, but Madrid fans have been singing his name of late and he is usually a manager that thrives when taking over a team that needs a lift.
Real Madrid are believed to have considered making an approach to Germany boss Joachim Low and have spoken with Zinedine Zidane over making a return to the role he vacated last summer after they formulated a three-man short-list to replace Solari, yet Mourinho looks set to be their chosen candidate.
"I am the coach and tomorrow, our obligation, mine in particular, is to go there and do the best we can", Solari said.
Real has lost three matches in a row, two against rival Barcelona and the third to Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday, as the club has been knocked out of two tournaments and is likely out of the race in La Liga. It's not our finest hour after the game the other day, but we've got a professional duty to fulfil.
"We do it day-by-day, even more so in victory".
