Real Madrid announced this week the departure of Zinedine Zidane as coach, after living a very weak season in which he did not win any title, being hard eliminated in the Champions League at the hands of Chelsea and losing La Liga to Atlético Madrid, the classic of the city. From the first moment, several important coaches began to sound in the orbit of the white club and this Saturday he began to link with the Spanish club to a coach he directed at the Los Angeles Galaxy and who did not do well at all in the MLS.
This' the Argentine Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who was fired from the Californian franchise at the end of 2020 due to poor results. The journalist Pablo Parra, who's in charge of covering the news of many European teams, assured on Radio Marca that the also former technical director of Boca Juniors in Argentina was offered to the club.
"The number one candidate to coach Real Madrid is Pochettino if he can leave PSG. There are many coaches who have volunteered ... Among them is Guillermo Barros Schelotto," commented the journalist for the Spanish media.
However, the correspondent assured that the Mellizo doesn't seem like an option for Florentino Pérez and his entire board of directors. His short stint in European football subtracts several points from consideration, taking into account that other candidates have extensive experience in the old continent.
Guillermo and Gustavo had one last step in the Los Angeles Galaxy, but since October 2020 they have been without a club. In Boca Juniors they won two league titles and reached a Copa Libertadores final. Can you imagine him at Real Madrid?
Guillermo Barros Schelotto has already directed at the Santiago Bernabéu
On December 9, 2018, the Twin and his Boca arrived at the Real Madrid stadium to play the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final against River. In La Bombonera they had equaled 2 to 2 and in Europe Xeneize won it with a goal from Darío Benedetto. However, Lucas Pratto, Juan Fernando Quintero and Gonzalo Martínez finished sentencing the 3 to 1 for Marcelo Gallardo.
