Real Madrid shipwreck
Over the summer he has managed to anger quite a few Madrid players with a domineering coaching style and tendency to humiliate them.
Luxemburgo simply makes no sense. He and the club told Figo to find another club, so Figo has done that with Liverpool. Look at this quote:
"Owen and Figo have contracts and should be here. Whether they are going to play or not is a different story but they are Real Madrid players" -Luxemburgo
First he gave the go ahead for Luis Figo to look for a new club and now that Figo has come to terms with Liverpool, he is expected at training with Madrid (ever since Real Madrid have flip-flopped and asked for a fee for Figo)? That’s nuts.
Michael Owen, a former Liverpool player has been told to accept a peripheral role.
What is also funny about the Luxemburgo player selection system is why the out of form Raul was never questioned as a first team choice along with the overweight Ronaldo. On the one hand, we have Madrid’s favorite son, Raul, so benching him would have produced politics. So Luxemburgo chose to play politics instead. At most clubs Owen would have replaced an out of form striker.
Ronaldo over Owen? Owen played much better when Ronaldo was injured. Madrid played better. Coach notice? No.
So Figo, Owen and now Guti are being mismanaged.
"If Guti said he didn't like it here and was going to go and find another club he should have gone. But as he is here it is because he didn't find another team and he should appreciate the work." -Luxemburgo
Plenty of clubs were interested in Guti.
This is the worst Madrid coach I have seen in a very long time.
