And fans took to social media to hit out at Zidane, claiming the Frenchman will leave the Bernabeu after their Copa del Rey defeat.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Well Zidane is on his way out!”
Another said: “Real Madrid is being spanked for not playing its in-form players.
“What did Zidane expect by benching Casemiro who is the back bone of RM Defence. GGWP. We are out of Copa Del Rey.”
“Zidane heading to retirement after being knocked out of the copa del rey by Real Sociedad,” one fan said.
Another fan said: “Zidane never won Copa Del Rey either as a Player or a Manager lmao.”
“#Zidaneout #ZidaneOut #ZidaneOut #Zidaneout #ZidaneOut #ZidaneOut,” fumed another.
Despite their Copa del Rey exit, Real are top of La Liga.
They boast a three point lead ahead of Barcelona after 22 games.
Zidane has warned his side they must continue to pick up points for the remainder of the season if they are to beat Barca to the title.
Zidane said: “Barcelona will do very well between now and the end of the season.
“But I won’t comment on another team. Good teams are always good and they’ll do well.
“We have to keep going like this because we haven’t won anything.
“You can be happy when you’ve won something, but we have nothing yet.”
