Following the recent defeat of Real Madrid in the el clasico, the defending European Champion has been tipped to sack the former Spain boss, Julen Lopetegui and replace him with former Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte.
Madrid was trashed 5-1 by their great rivals Barcelona on Sunday as Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick goal.
Although, the Spanish media reports that Real directors are to meet later today (Monday, October 29, 2018) when Lopetegui’s sacking could be confirmed.
After the Sunday match, Ramos stated that managing the dressing room at Real is more important than technical knowledge.
Meanwhile, Twitter users have taken to their various handles to react to this new development as some now believe that the team needs a firmer hand, while others said they don’t think Antonio is the right person to replace Lopetegui as there are many egos in the dressing room at Santiago Bernabeu that he cannot control.
Below are some of the tweets captured:
I don't agree with those saying Antonio Conte can't handle Real Madrid's dressing room.
He did it at Chelsea he can do it at Real Madrid #ConteToMadrid

I dunno what you think, but I feel Antonio Conte is not the right man to replace Julen Lopetegui at Real Madrid..
There are many Egos in the dressing room at Santiago Bernabeu which he cannot manage..
No. 1 Ego is Sergio Ramos…

Julen Lopetegui set to be SACKED by the Brass of the Santiago Bernabeu outfit.
Meanwhile, Antonio Conte is now in talks to be his replacement.
With a Team like Madrid that ve won it all and Big names like Ramos, would be interesting 2 see how the Italian Tactician will cope.

Have to seriously question whether Eden Hazard would join Real Madrid if Antonio Conte becomes manager

Real Madrid is a stage where you can easily be exposed if you have no coaching skills. Antonio Conte should think twice. Lopetegui's CV is irreparably damaged.
