Florentino Pérez wait signs at Tottenham coach with a colossal money contract
Real Madrid’s President Florentino Perez is burned to find the new coach after Julen Lopetegui ‘s departure. The Spanish team, just three months after Lopetegui’s recruitment (he had taken his place of resignation, Zidane), failed to find a balance and things for about 20 days seemed to be leading to divorce.
After the crash in the Camp Nou with 5-1 from Barcelona, in the afternoon of Sunday, the thread was cut. So it was expected on Monday morning, October 29th, that Mr Perez should proceed to the dismissal of Lopetegui.
Nobody, of course, could say the slightest to the top manager of the «merengues» for his decision. The UEFA Champions League winner in the championship of Spain had enjoyed the joy of victory for the last time on September 22!
He then beat Espanyol with 1-0 at the Bernabeu. The sequel since then was disappointing: He was defeated in a row by Sevilla, Alaves, Levante. He made a draw with Atletico Madrid and then met the crash from Barcelona.
So, Lopetegui , who had signed a 3-year contract with Real in the summer of 2018, just 3.5 months ago, was removed in 139 days. Something that’s hard enough but it’s definitely not the worst record.
The most negative record is José Antonio Camacho who was also hired by Perez in 2004, but after 6 games (2 wins, 2 draws, 2 Losses) he was forced to resign …

However, Julen Lopetegui, who had a net annual earnings of € 6 million, will now receive the net amount of € 3 million because there was a term in his contract that if he left before January 2019 (as it was, he would receive from the Madrid team half the amount of his annual salary. Of course, we do not think the 52-year-old Julen technician feels particularly bad when he puts his bill for three days in 139 days …
No self-criticism – Pochettino ‘ s main candidate
One issue that has been discussed but still is on the lips of its fans is that there was no self-critical mood for the bad start at the start of the season that is going on.
The authoritative newspaper «Marca» was logical to criticize Lopetegui ‘s dismissal, since he certainly was not the only one responsible for Real’s bad course:
«Real’s embarrassing announcement, he dismissed Lopetegui in a bad way through an unreasonable bid for the eight Golden Ball candidates, not self-criticism for the design and a temporary successor,» he says on the front page.»
Meanwhile, Florentino Perez moved to Italian, former Chelsea technician, Antonio Conte, but several of his prominent footballers have expressed strong reactions to his face. So Mr. Perez made it back.
He turned his attention to Tottenham coach, Mauricio Pochettino in the hope of persuading him to leave the London team and to continue his career in «Santiago Bernabeu». Madrid’s administration has submitted a wonderful proposal to Argentine. They give him for a 5-year contract, 80 million euros. Approximately 17 million euros a year. In fact, it is twice as high as the one now winning in Tottenham Hotspur (9m euros).
Now, of course, what will the administration of the «pussies» say as Pochettino still has a contract with them? Of course, if they get some compensation they may make a retreat …
Soon, however, there will be developments, even if temporarily the «wheel» of Real will be retained by Santiago Solari, old player of the football …
