Zinedine Zidane is already under pressure at Real Madrid and his latest move angered the LaLiga giants’ board.
Madrid have made a slow start to the season, winning two of four LaLiga games and suffering a humbling defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
A decision Zidane made after that loss has reportedly upset the leaders at Madrid.
Zidane’s decision to give his players a day off on Thursday in the wake of their PSG defeat provoked Real Madrid’s board, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The latest report just adds to what has been a tough return to the Santiago Bernabeu for Zidane, back at the helm for a second stint.
