Real Madrid's Guti Praises Manuel Pellegrini As Jose Mourinho States He Is Out

Real Madrid veteran Guti has leaped to the defence of sacked coach Manuel Pellegrini after incoming coach Jose Mourinho stated that the 33-year-old had no role to play in his side.

Guti is reported to have told general manager Jorge Valdano of his desire to remain at the Bernabeu next season, to see out the remainder of his contract, apparently backtracking on earlier comments that this would be his last season at Madrid.

The story is too old to be commented.
