MADRID, NNCJose Mourinho is now increasingly being coveted by Real Madrid supporters. The reason, their favorite team is now half battered, and had just been eliminated by Ajax Amsterdam in the round of last 16 of the Champions League.

In the second leg of the Champions League last 16 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday (6/3/2019) early morning Indonesian western time, Madrid lost 1-4 to Ajax. Los Galacticos were eliminated with an aggregate of 3-5, after winning 2-1 in the first leg.

For Madrid, this is their third straight defeat in a week at different competitions. Two previous defeats were obtained from Barcelona, ​​in which Madrid lost 0-3 in the Copa del Rey and 0-1 in LaLiga.

No doubt, the position of current Madrid manager Santiago Solari is rocked. The 42-year-old coach was considered a failure to bring Madrid to peak performance, with so far having to go through 8 defeats throughout his coaching era.

Previously there had been widespread rumors of Solari's dismissal. Moreover, the man rumored to replace Solari is Mourinho, who also coached Madrid in 2010-2013.

Mourinho, who is unemployed after being sacked by Manchester United, claimed there were no problems if he was trusted to return to training Madrid. That is, the Portuguese manager was ready to manage the club he had previously won to win the Copa del Rey 2010/2011 and LaLiga 2011/2012.

The question is, when will Mourinho take over the position of coach from the hands of Solari?
