Real Madrid Players Want A Surprise Name To Be The Club's Next Manager

Real Madrid's players do not want Santiago Solari to be the club's permanent boss according to a leading Spanish journalist.

Instead, they want Michael Laudrup or Guti to take over from Julen Lopetegui who was sacked on Monday night after weeks of speculation about his future.

Eduardo Inda suggested that Solari is not well-liked in the Real Madrid changing room and doubts have been expressed about his experience as an elite player and coach. Some have argued that a strong personality is needed to turn around the current Real crisis and Solari is not sufficiently qualified for the job.

Inda confirmed on El Chiringuito de Jugones that: "The players are very sympathetic to Solari but do not want him. The best reports do not come from the kids of Castilla and a few months ago they were about to dismiss him from Castilla. Are you going to take Madrid out of the crisis now?

"The players have been consulted and have the opinion of Chelsea's Spanish footballers. They have given two names:  Guti and Laudrup."

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was widely expected to be named as the next Real Madrid manager but yesterday negotiations hit a stumbling block and it now seems he will not be joining the club. There has been some support for Belgium boss Roberto Martinez but this is a move which could take months to finalise, a factor which counts against him in the eyes of some Spanish pundits. However, he is well liked and they may be willing to go the extra mile to land the former Wigan, Swansea and Everton boss.
