Ramos: This Is Madrid's Worst Season

Zinedine Zidane is on the brink of losing his job as Real Madrid manager following his side's 2-2 draw to Levante on Saturday evening.

Both have been booed by their own fans and while Real president Florentino Perez reportedly urged Ramos to take Ronaldo out for dinner to assure him of his legendary status at the club, the Madrid giants are not known for their patience.

Marco Asensio replaced Ronaldo with eight minutes remaining after Zidane wanted "a little more strength in the middle". In the last five games, Real Madrid has won three games and lost two games but Levante has lost four games and drawn one match.

They now sit fourth and are nineteen points behind league leaders and rivals Barcelona, and their hopes of another title are slipping away.

Said Zidane: "It was planned to change him, and that's all", Zidane told beIN SPORTS. Zidane needed a goal and Ronaldo didn't look like scoring one.

In an interview, manager Zinedine Zidane went on to say, "This year is being hard for us".

Inter Milan star Mauro Icardi and new Manchester United ace Alexis Sanchez were touted as potential candidates to join them with Benzema having scored just two La Liga goals in the opening half of the season.

As he made his way to the bench, Ronaldo did not acknowledge Zidane as he walked past the Madrid boss on the touchline.

The record comes after the Spaniard put Real Madrid 1-0 up against Levante last night when he latched onto a header from a Toni Kroos corner in the first half. We know that it is nearly impossible but we have to remain well in the league because it's imprtant to us and to gain confidence.

A clash with Levante should provide them with another chance to get three points on the board, with the Valencia-based club sitting just two points above the relegation zone.
