Spotlight back on Mourinho after Real Madrid collapse

Four-midable Ajax send holders Real Madrid tumbling

They also claim, however, that Mourinho is not the club's first-choice candidate to replace him.

However, they bombed out of that too, falling to Ajax 4-1 in the Round of 16 to end their three-year run as Champions League title holders.

Calderon told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I know that this morning the president [Florentino Perez] called Zidane to ask him back, he said not now".

According to reports in the AS, Florentino Perez had a long meeting with his board about a managerial appointment, and it has been rumored that Jose Mourinho could be back at the helm of the affairs at Madrid. Obviously it's a reason to be proud, but nothing more than that. Other names being mentioned include Juergen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino, Joachim Loew and Antonio Conte, who was highly touted to replace Julen Lopetegui when the former Spain coach was sacked a few months into his job with Madrid this season.

De Boer, who works as a youth coach with the Amsterdam club, spent four years at Ibrox as a player from 2000-04, and said he is "100 per cent sure" that clubs like Rangers and Celtic can replicate Ajax's success.

Calderon added: "The first option for the president has always, always been Mourinho".

Solari said after the loss to Ajax he hadn't accepted the job only to surrender when things got hard, and also said he wasn't anxious about all the talk by Mourinho.

He has not taken up another managerial role since leaving Real, although he has been heavily linked with the jobs at Manchester United and Chelsea.

The result took away all of Madrid's hopes of a silverware this season, having been knocked out of the Cope del Rey by Barcelona last week and fallen 12-points behind their eternal rivals in the Liga table.
