Chelsea fans believe Zinedine Zidane could be set to replace Antonio Conte

The pressure is building on Chelsea manager Antonio Conte following his side’s EFL Cup defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night, and Blues fans are confident that under-fire Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane could be set to replace him.

Already highly unlikely to retain their Premier League crown this season, the west London outfit would have seen the EFL Cup as a realistic trophy target, but they were beaten 2-1 on the night โ€“ and on aggregate following the goalless draw in the first leg at Stamford Bridge โ€“ as they exited the competition.

Meanwhile, Real are fourth in La Liga and 19 points behind leaders Barcelona, while they were knocked out of the Copa del Rey following a 2-1 defeat against Leganes at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the potential appointment of Zidane via social media, and while one said “welcome to Chelsea”, another said “Zidane in, Conte out”.
