Michel Salgado sees no reason why his former Real Madrid teammate, Guti, can’t become the next Los Blancos boss.

The hunt is on for Madrid’s next coach after the shock resignation of Zinedine Zidane – who led the club to three straight Champions League final successes.

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.

Michel Salgado feels his former teammate would make a great replacement for Zidane.

Michel Salgado feels his former teammate would make a great replacement for Zidane.

“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?”

Decisions to make: Club president Florentino Perez.

Real Madrid will name Zinedine Zidane‘s successor before next Thursday (June 14) – the day in which the World Cup begins, according to AS.

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.

Tite has yet to commit his long-term future to Brazil.

Real Madrid have identified Brazil boss Tite as the man to succeed Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu, according to AS.

Los Blancos are on the hunt for Zidane’s successor after he stepped down as Whites boss following an historic run of three consecutive Champions League trophies.

Former Internacional, Al Wahda and Corinthians head coach Tite of course has his hands full at the moment with the World Cup about to kick-off, but he has delayed his decision over a new contract until after the tournament.

That has potentially given Madrid the chance to talk to his representatives immediately after the summer showpiece in Russia.

It has also been suggested that Tite’s good relationship with Neymar could help the Whites in their long-time pursuit of the Paris Saint-Germain star.
