El Clasico: Alba hopes Lopetegui keeps Real Madrid job

Real Madrid were shocked by Levante in La Liga on Saturday

Real Madrid were shocked by Levante in La Liga on Saturday

"All the people made decisions and at that moment Julen wanted to finish the World Cup and sign for Madrid, but then the president of the federation [Luis Rubiales] made the decision that he took", Alba told reporters. Normally in conversation for titles and wins, they are simply looking for stability amidst poor form.

Madrid is seventh in the Spanish league with 14 points, four fewer than leader Barcelona after nine matches.

As a result, pressure has been put on current coach Julen Lopetegui as many are looking for his two-month long career with the Spanish capital to be cut short due to their poor performances.

Marcelo's goal against Levante was Madrid's first in 481 minutes, a negative milestone that comes in the first season without Cristiano Ronaldo in almost a decade.

First off, the Spaniard Isco quickly defended his manager, instead he spread the blame on everyone as they win and lose as a team.

At one stage, Ronaldo looked to be in danger of missing the game entirely after he was shown a red card in Juve's Champions League opener against Valencia for pulling Jeison Murillo's hair, but in the end he was only given a one-match ban.

"We can't be crying over someone who didn't want to be here".

Ronaldo left Madrid over the summer for Juventus, with only Mariano Diaz arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu to replace the Portugal global.

The Portuguese said: "It's all right".

"I am here right now, I can not confirm anything else right now". After an underhanded comment on Isco, he tried his best not to comment on Real's situation.

Lopetegui has been defiant over questions about his future, saying: "What I've learned about this club is to fight, that is the DNA of this club".

Real Madrid have sounded out ex-Chelsea boss Conte about taking over with Julen Lopetegui under mounting pressure and clinging to his job ahead of their Champions League showdown with Czech side Viktoria Plzen.

"Now they are not doing so much, but last season it was similar and eventually won the Champions League".
