Who will be Real Madrid’s new manager? Ancelloti or Heynckes?

June 14, 2013


After Jose Mourinho quit one of the most coveted and toughest job in world football- to manage Real Madrid, the Spanish giants has not been able to find his replacement. Though, Jose Mourinho wasted no time to get back to his club, which he loves most, Chelsea putting pen to paper for new contract. There are big names, which are doing the rounds such as Carlo Ancelotti, the present PSG manager and Jupp Heynckes, former Bayern Munich Manager.

There is no rocket science involved with Carlo Ancelotti being their prime target, who has an incredible resume of managing the top football clubs around the world namely Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea and PSG. He has managed to win league titles with all these clubs, except Juventus. He could well take on this Madrid job, as he may want to test his managerial skills at Spain as well after success in England, Italy and France.

No wonder Real Madrid considers Ancelotti to be their man, considering Real’s reputation of hiring only established managers. Florentino Perez, the re-elected President of Real Madrid will play an important role in geting the right person for the job and has dropped hints claiming Ancelotti to fit their bill.

Another manager who might take the prestigious seat at Real Madrid is Jupp Heynckes, who has just won the treble with the German club, Bayern Munich. But Heyncknes has stated that he wants to take rest before he takes up his new assignment, which does not auger well for Madrid. When such big club comes calling, even holidays are cut short and it would be no surprise, if Heyncknes also follows the same route if Madrid shows some genuine interest.

Ancelotti and Heynckes are the two most suitable person for the job not only with their ability to win trophies, but also their capability to handle the big name players, which are in great numbers at Real Madrid. One of the toughest job for them is to keep their players happy as star players may have to warm the bench. Both the said managers have handled their respective teams with star players effectively and even more so the former Bayern manager, as his team comprised of international German players.

Real Madrid must be keeping tabs over things at Swansea City as well, with the club’s dispute with their manager, Michael Laudrup’s agent. But, there are chances that some other managers might sneak through the back door as well, if Real Madrid fails to get the manager they want, which seldom happens with such a huge football institution like Real Madrid. Some outside contenders for the prestigious names may include Laurent Blanc and Zinedine Zidane.

Irrespective of the manager, Real Madrid ropes in, it is imperative for the club to get the deal done with the Transfer window set to open on July officially, where top players will be targeted.
