Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has said the next manager of Los Blancos needs to be ambitious and have the ability to unite the dressing room.
Los Merengues are on the search for a new man to take over the helm, as current boss Jose Mourinho will leave the club after the final game of the season against Osasuna.
Speaking to sports newspaper Marca, the 27-year-old said the new manager would need to be a strong and ambitious character with complete trust in the playing staff.
He said Jupp Heynckes and Carlo Ancelotti – both mentioned as candidates for the job – would fit the bill.
“At a group level, we need a manager who trusts this squad and is ambitious; who is determined to achieve things. Heynckes and Ancelotti are two great managers, but we don’t know who’s coming,” he stated.
He also dismissed suggestions Mourinho had lost the trust of the players and demanded the Portuguese be respected for his achievements during his three-year stint in the Spanish capital.
