REAL MADRID SACK PELLEGRINI TO MAKE WAY FOR MOURINHO

REAL MADRID SACK PELLEGRINI TO MAKE WAY FOR MOURINHO

Real Madrid have sacked manager Manuel Pellegrini who lead the team to their largest points total ever in a season.

Though Madrid racked up points, they failed to win any silverware in the year Pellegrini was in charge, even though the team spent $308 on the likes of Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema  and Xabi Alonso.  Worse, Madrid fans had to stand by and watch Barcelona win a second consecutive league title as well as snatching up a domestic treble in 2009.

This move, however, is less about Pellegrini’s performance as it is about clearing the way for the Special One who is set to arrive any day now.

The Portuguese superstar coach has agreed in principal with Real Madrid to coach the team to the tune of  $12 million per year for four years. This would make him the highest-grossing coach/manager in all of sports.

It will certainly be Jose Mourinho’s biggest challenge yet. Real Madrid, a team that thrives on ego is about to learn the definition of the word.
