“He wants to be the coach of Real Madrid” – Agent for former defender reveals aspiration

Published

Alvaro Arbeloa’s representative, Oscar Ribot, has suggested that the former Real Madrid defender, who currently coaches the Juvenil A team, dreams of managing the first team.

After retiring from professional football in 2017, Arbeloa was appointed the manager of Real Madrid’s U-14 side in 2020 and just two years later, he moved to the Juvenil A side.

“He wants to be the coach of Real Madrid and he has everything to achieve it,” said Ribot as quoted by Defensa Central

“He has the club’s values, loyalty, professionalism, and hunger and he understands that in the club, you always have to go out to win and fight for the maximum. 

“He carries that DNA in his blood, so I have no doubt that one day he will be on the Santiago Bernabéu bench,” he added.

It is to be noted that Real Madrid and Kylian Mbappe are nearing an agreement, especially after the French star announced he won’t renew his contract with PSG and plans to leave in June.

Amidst all this, in France, Ribot stirred discussions with his comments. Arbeloa, who has aspirations of managing Real Madrid, is now in the spotlight, even though Carlo Ancelotti is under contract until 2026.

These statements are generating buzz on social media and have even made their way to France, sparking conversations about the possibility of the former Real Madrid player becoming Mbappe’s future coach.

Despite the chatter, though, it must be noted that Florentino Perez’s long-term plan seems to involve Xabi Alonso taking over once Ancelotti leaves. However, Arbeloa is also considered a strong candidate for the manager role at Real Madrid.

At present, the team from the Spanish capital is not really bothered by the managerial spot as Ancelotti continues to have the faith of the management. The talks of potential openings within the managerial role will only open up towards the end of the next season.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
