- The Portuguese's odds of taking over at Real Madrid are 6/5.
- 56 per cent of the bets were made after Los Blancos' 3-0 loss to PSG.
- Mauricio Pochettino (9/2) & Massimiliano Allegri (7/1) are second and third on the list.
As Real Madrid have not enjoyed a great start to the new season, Zinedine Zidane's situation at Santiago Bernabeu is as shaky as ever. Thus, bookmakers Oddschecker have revealed odds on the Frenchman's potential successor.
As it stands, Jose Mourinho is a clear favourite with the Portuguese specialist's chances of taking over at Los Blancos rated at 6/5. The agency point out 56 per cent of the bets were placed following the La Liga giants' loss to PSG in the Champions League opener [3-0].
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who was linked with a move to Madrid last season, is second at 9/2. Massimilano Allegri, who's currently unemployed and was also rumoured to take the job in the past, rounds up the top 3 with the odds of 7/1.
The list in full:
- Jose Mourinho: 6/5
- Mauricio Pochettino: 9/2
- Massimilano Allegri: 7/1
- Roberto Martinez: 9/1
- Leonardo Jardim: 11/1
- Raul: 12/1
- Guti: 14/1
- Xabi Alonso: 20/1
- Jurgen Klopp: 33/1
- Arsene Wenger: 40/1
If Mourinho becomes Los Blancos' new boss, it would be the Special One's second spell at Santiago Bernabeu. Between 2010 and 2013, the 56-year-old managed Real Madrid in 178 games at the win rate of 72 per cent and won La Liga, Copa del Rey and Supercopa de Espana.
Jose's last managerial job was a two and a half year spell at Manchester United. The Portuguese head coach was sacked last December due to poor results.
