Roberto Martinez prior to Belgium – Netherlands (1-1)
Several Spanish media report that the Royal collection has at his management. Previously departed technical director Chris Van puyvelde got some already for an adventure in China and was an assistant coach, and Thierry Henry to be the new coach of AS Monaco.
The coach does not want to respond to the persistent messages “I’m not going to respond to rumors,” said Martinez at VTM.
Former Real Madrid president Ramón Calderón believes that Real Madrid will waive Antonio Conte. The Italian seemed to be the leading contender for the vacancy in the Spanish capital, but would be too much for him. “Conte wants for three years of drawing, five assistants to take itself a free hand in transfers. That fits, not the policy of Real”, said Calderón opposite the BBC. “That the chairman will not accept it.”
Calderón then pulls the view of Conte is in doubt. “He is as a trainer similar to José Mourinho.” Mourinho was between 2010 and 2013 and head coach of Real. “A coach with a defensive style. That is not what Real Madrid expected.”
Also FourFourTwo see that Martinez has the chance. “His contract with the Belgian national team can be a stumbling block,” writes the British voetbalblad. Martinez extended recently his contract until 2020. “But you would expect that he is tempted by the prospects of the top job in his native country. He is one of the favorites for the job.”
In addition to Martinez would Real Madrid think of Guti, Santiago Solari, Mauricio Pochettino, Leonardo Jardim and Arsène Wenger. These are Guti (youth) and Solari (interimtrainer main power) is already working at the club.
