Lionel Messi’s Friend In Race To Take Over From Ancelotti As Real Madrid Manager

Marcelo Gallardo, a friend of PSG ace Lionel Messi is reportedly in contention to take over at Real Madrid in the event of manager Carlo Ancelotti’s departure.

Report indicates that Ancelotti is said to be heading to Brazil to become their next head coach, following the resignation of Tite last December.

The Italian’s contract at the Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of next season but there is a strong chance that he will leave Real Madrid in the summer.

Brazilian FA (CBF) president Ednaldo Rodrigues has explicitly confirmed that the former Chelsea, AC Milan and Everton boss has emerged as the favorite to take over from boss Ramon Menezes at the helm.

And now, Argentine outlet Ole reports that Gallardo is one of the candidates for the job at Santiago Bernabeu.

Gallardo had coached Nacional during the 2011-12 season before moving to River Plate as their head coach in the summer of 2014.

Gallardo took charge of 424 games for Los Millonarios over a period of eight and a half years until his exit in December 2022.

The two-time Copa Libertadores-winning manager, who was adjudged the fifth-best coach worldwide in 2015 by IFFHS, has since been on the free market.

He will battle for the Real Madrid top job with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Xabi Alonso, Raul Gonzalez, and Jose Mourinho, Zinedine Zidane and Julian Nagelsmann.
