3 managers Real Madrid could sign to replace Santiago Solari
Not long after Santiago Solari’s appointment as head coach, Real Madrid are now going back to crisis. Los Blancos have three defeats in their latest 4 matches, including 2 consecutive losses against arch-rival Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu. Champions League now seems to be Solari’s only chance to defend his position at the club.
However, several reports recently mentioning that Madrid are already looking for a replacement for their under-fire boss. It is understandable that Florentino Perez would look for a manager who could take back Real Madrid to domestic glory. Fortunately, some serial-winning managers are capable of putting Barcelona’s La Liga dominance to an end.
Here are 3 high-profile managers who Madrid could sign to replace Solari.
#1 Joachim Low
Joachim Low has been one of the best national team coaches in the recent decade. Despite his disappointing result in the 2018 World Cup, Low’s reputation as one of the world’s most respected coach is still there.
The German coach has inherited arguably the worst Germany national team from Jurgen Klinsmann in 2006 and has since been transforming them as one of the most feared teams in the world.
The 59-year-old won the 2014 World Cup and received many individual awards including IFFHS World's Best National Coach in 2014 and 2017. He has been managing well-known superstars such as Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller for years. This managerial skills would surely help him in managing star-studded Real Madrid.
#2 Jurgen Klopp
Despite their slip in the Premier League, the Reds are still pretty much in the title contention while their chances to win the Champions League are also open. The 51-year-old is known by many for his managerial prowess that has transformed Liverpool to become one of the deadliest teams in Europe.
Klopp could make the best out of Mohamed Salah and, he could do the same to Vinicius Junior. Klopp had been dominating the Bundesliga from 2010 to 2012 and could break Manchester City's Premier League dominance this time. With those domestic achievements, the German could be the answer for Real Madrid to get back their La Liga success.
#3 Massimiliano Allegri
It is safe to say that Massimiliano Allegri is an upgrade to Antonio Conte in terms of managing Juventus. He helped the Old Lady become one of Champions League's strongest contenders while maintaining the club's dominance in Italy. Unfortunately, now it seems that being a European contender is just as far as he goes.
The Italian manager is now on the brink of elimination from the competitions. On the other hand, Juventus clearly wants the title following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. Perez had contacted Allegri last year in the hopes of luring the Italian to join Madrid but got rejected.
Now a second attempt by Perez could be strong enough to lure the 51-year-old, especially when Atletico knock him out from the Champions League. With his series of domestic success, the ex AC Milan coach could be best for Madrid to dethrone Barcelona.
