Madrid Back To Their Usual Selves

Madrid Back To Their Usual Selves

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.

That would be a positive move for AW wouldnt it, a manager who bides his time to get the players he wants and conducts his transfer activity with a quiet decorum, to go to a team where the board demand big name signings every year and dont care who they ride over in the process, and then sack him when they achieve everything they want, a logical step for le boss I'd say!

I don't think anybody other than the spanish actually listen to a word these presidents say. They may be massive clubs but frankly their constant chatting to the media to try & impress their fans is boring & more than a little predictable. Wenger has said himself he would only go to Real Madrid if he was unemployed, meaning that he would prefer to join any club before going to a team where the only decision you make is to pick 3 or 4 of the staring 11 each week, & thats only so you can take the abuse should the team lose!!

Agreed AG - The entire Spanish set up is a complete joke. It's all one big mind game and rather overshadows the point of the whole thing. Football.

It is a classic 'alibi' statement by a character that is renown for its c(u)ntingness and stupidity - what he is actually saying is: "we are appointing a probably crap, unproven manager like Schuster because we're in deep sh(i)t. We just sacked the one who won us the title after 3 years, and no sane person wants to work for us in these conditions. Don't worry, if by January we're below 3rd place - we'll be looking for a new one. And we'd like to sign Jose Reyes for a bag of peanuts and two season tickets for the corrida".

DD - Even if Wenger leaves next season he will have been nothing but loyal. He always fulfills his contractual obligations and it's something he'll do with Arsenal.

I'd pretty much risk every penny I have that Wenger should he decide to leave next summer will not join either real madrid or barcelona. He actually said once before the only other club he would like to manage is Bayern Munich!!
