The former Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado has said that he would be open to the possibility of returning to the Santiago Bernebeu in order to help the manager José Mourinho recover from his problems at the club. The Portuguese manager José Mourinho has been facing problems never before like in his career. He has already lost six matches so far this campaign with Real Madrid, which is by far the worst he has managed in any of his previous clubs. Real Madrid have fallen 13 points behind arch rivals Barcelona, with the manager recently admitting that there is no chance of them winning the title now.
This has come a major blow to his reputation and fans have been calling for his head for quite a while. The has also been a lot of speculation that he will leave the club at the end of the season after not settling in with the Spanish culture. His future at the Santiago Bernabeu depends on the possibility of winning the elusive 10th European trophy that the club is chasing. Salgado, who has a lot of experience of playing for the Spanish club, has said that he is willing to join Mourinho at Real Madrid in the hope of helping him understand the philosophy of the club.
“I would do anything that Madrid wants, whenever it needs me. My phone is always open for Madrid, for Mourinho or anyone from the club. When they call me for something, I am here. Florentino is a powerful person who controls everything. He has done lots of good things, but also made mistakes. He decided Mourinho was his key to come out of a difficult moment. That was why he gave him so much power,” said the former Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado in a recent interview.
