Carlos ‘not wanted’ as coach

Former Real Madrid player and current ambassador Roberto Carlos believes the club don’t want him to be in a coaching capacity.

Carlos spent eleven years at the Bernabeu and is a former team-mate of current manager Zinedine Zidane along with Santiago Solari who are currently coaching Real Madrid Castilla and the youth team.

“I spoke with the club [about a management role] but they don’t want me,” he said at a Real Madrid Foundation press conference in Beijing on Thursday morning.

“They said that for now they want me to continue as an ambassador.

“When I have the opportunity to return to the training field I will but at the moment I’m happy as an ambassador.”

The 43-year-old also called for calm and expressed his confidence that the current Real Madrid’s team form would soon improve.

“Things haven’t gone to plan in the last four games, but there’s time to recover. The atmosphere is excellent, we have a fantastic team and hopefully we can win the league again,” he stated.

Carlos left the Bernabeu in 2007 and retired from football last year, aged 42.
