5 World-class Managers Who Rejected Top Job At Real Madrid by manlikeboss: 3:11am On Nov 02, 2018
Real Madrid sacked their manager Julen Lopetegui after Sunday's disappointing 5-1 defeat to Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

The Galacticos took the decision following a poor run of results in all competitions as they currently sit ninth on the La Liga table.

Although, they have appointed Castilla boss Santiago Solari on an interim basis, they are still faced with the challenge of naming a substantial manager soon.


However, Spanish Federation regulation states that caretaker managers can only be in charge of a team for a fortnight.

As much as most would expect manager's to swoop in on an opportunity to handle what many have come to habitually consider football's most successful club in history, such is not the case.

If anything, an interesting trend surfaced of top-level managers declining the chance of picking up were Zidane left off, in fear of falling prey to Madrid's crumbling dynasty.

Certainly, many factors come into play including the aspect of members of Madrid's genius team that conquered back-to-back Champions
League titles now fast fading away into retirement.

The end of a legacy was symbolically marked by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, who seemed to have been a vital cog towards Los Blancos' success.

Other's suggest that most experienced managers are weary of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and the club's ruthless manner of turning out coaches if they don't deliver.

Here are five elite managers who thought twice and turned down the top job at Madrid.

5. Antonio Conte

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has reportedly dropped out of the race to become the next Real Madrid handler following Lopetegui's exit.
The former Italy national team boss believes the Los Blancos project is not right for him.

4. Mauricio Pochettino
Prior to the start of the season, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said he was extremely happy at Spurs and had big dreams and many objectives to achieve in the North London club.
The Spurs manager was apparently a top candidate to lead the Bernabeu following Frenchman Zinedine Zidane's abrupt resignation.

Pochettino put pen to paper and extended his stay with the North London outfit for another five years in January making things a little tricky for Madrid to lure him away from Spurs.

3. Massimiliano Allegri

The Juventus manager declined Madrid's offer to come in after he was strongly linked to replace Zidane at the helm.

Allegri refused to manage Real Madrid saying that he had already made a commitment to the Serie A club and would honour it.
And looking at where Juventus is right now; he certainly made the right decision.

2. Arsene Wenger

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reportedly declined Madrid's approach to take over from Lopetegui saying that he would only resume football in 2019.

1. Jurgen Klopp
At some point following defeat to Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League in May, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was rumoured to be in talks with Perez over a possible move.


Klopp's has turned Liverpool into an overnight success and he currently boasts one of the best teams in Europe.
It was always highly unlikely the German tactician would have left Anfield.
Regardless, Real Madrid's dreams are still valid.

Hmmmmm it’s not a fake news, they all rejected it. It’s the most difficult job at the moment
Even Neymar and Mbappe combined together can not save them at the moment as you can see they are not able to save PSG
In Ronaldo you have so many things,Certified 50 goals both direct shot and tap-ins, you have a leader, you have penaldo,tapnado,goat,fighter and a celebrity! MADRID lost everything

Real Madrid's coaching jobs is a hot seat. Go there and get ready to be sack.
Very soon Chelsea go experience the same thing if they keep sacking coaches.

The headline is misleading.
These coaches already have a club that they are managing with the exception of Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger.
You cannot expect them to leave their good clubs for a struggling Real Madrid with the heavy pressure of being the team that just won the champions league back to back.

If na u , u go carry wahala put for head...the moment ronaldo left, that team crumbled ....I still wonder how the raining world best player can't turn the team around just like ronaldo did yr in yr out...ronaldo contributed to 80% of their goals thru scoring or assists ...whatever he demanded , they should hv paid....that stupid president had forgotten that ronaldo led them to 8 straight CL semis and 4 finals ...top scorer in the CL for 7 consecutive seasons averaging 14 goals person ....even messi no fit try am... How dare u loose that sort of player ... Now Madrid has returned to the old ways b4 ronaldo ...when dey used to disgrace us out of CL every 2nd round... Ronaldo na king ...his presence alone trembles other teams, cos u must budget 1goal for am... U almost certainly can't stop him from scoring u...now that he has left , teams will change tactics against real Madrid cos the lion that preys on them has left
