After reporting that Real Madrid made a statement that wasn't full of complete cobblers, it didn't take long before normal service was resumed. 2 minutes to be exact.
The boys from the Bernabeu have a weird little habit of sacking their coaches who win them the league, and Fabio Capello was no exception. Fired only a week or so after lifting the Spanish league title, the search for Capello's replacement is apparently underway.
Ramon Calderon has stated that Real have had talks with four coaches including our very own Arsene Wenger.
'Once we decided that Capello would not continue, Mijatovic underwent talks with Schuster, Koeman, Laudrup and Wenger. He has always been among the three or four coaches with whom we have spoken. It appears logical that he will be the next coach.' Calderon told the club's official website.
Yet despite Wenger's obvious pedigree it seems that Madrid have made the 'logical choice' of giving the task of coaching one of the world's most glamorous football clubs to a relative unknown, and might I add a trophy-less manager who is Bernd Schuster.
So either once again, Madrid are talking knackers, or managers around the around the world have become so weary of taking the volatile position that the club are resigned to offering managers with no real experience of the big time the position of gaffer.
Either way, we can pretty much guarantee that if talks were held with Wenger they went something like this.
Calderon: Good afternoon Mr Wenger, we'd like you consider the position of manager of Real Madrid. We hold you in extremely high regard and would move the earth to bring you to our club.
Wenger: F*** off.
