7.49pm – Michel Salgado feels Guti can replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid boss
Michel Salgado sees no reason why his former Real Madrid teammate, Guti, can’t become the next Los Blancos boss.
Former Real right-back Salgado believes Guti, currently in charge of the Merengues youth team, can step into the hotseat vacated by Zinedine Zidane.
He said: “Why not? It is the same situation: Guti has been coaching for two years in the lower categories of Real Madrid and Zidane had one [year]. “Why can’t he do well at Real Madrid?”

And former Real right-back Salgado believes Guti, currently in charge of the Merengues youth team, can step into the hotseat vacated by the Frenchman.
Much like Zidane, Guti has cut his teeth working away with Real’s next generation and it has so far been a struggle for the club to attract a big name, such as Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte or Jurgen Klopp.
“It is the question that everyone asked Zidane when he came to the bench,” Salgado told EFE in London.
“When he was appointed, the vast majority of the media didn’t consider him the right option and said he had no experience. But it is impossible to gain experience if you don’t coach anyone.
“So, why not? It is the same situation: Guti has been coaching for two years in the lower categories of Real Madrid and Zidane had one [year]. “Why can’t he do well at Real Madrid?”
Los Blancos hierarchy were shellshocked when the club legend announced his resignation at the end of the last month following three unprecedented Champions League triumphs.
That has led to widespread speculation over who will replace him, with names such as Antonio Conte, Arsene Wenger and Guti in the mix.
According to reports, Real will do their utmost to appoint their new boss on the same day, or just before the summer showpiece gets underway in Russia.
It remains to be seen whether or not Madrid can conclude a deal during this short timeframe.
