MADRID , SPAIN - OCTOBER 17: Head coach Jose Maria Gutierrez ' Guti ' of Real Madrid gives instructions during the UEFA Youth Champions League group H match between Real Madrid The Spanish sports show El Chiringuito ran a poll to see who Madrid fans would like to replace Zidane .

“ Guti will be the coach of Real Madrid so he won’t coach Murcia ,” said Galvez when asked about Murcia ’s next coach . “I wish Zidane had stayed for two more days so that we could’ve completed the deal for Guti ,” he added.

“Guti won’t become Murcia boss because he’s going to become Real Madrid coach,” Galvez said. “He was the guy I wanted, and it’s a shame Zidane didn’t take a couple of days longer to make his decision. Guti called me to thank me for my interest.”

He was linked earlier this summer to vacancies at Leganes in La Liga and St Mirren in Scotland, as well as Murcia, having enjoyed a successful spell in charge of Real's Under-18 side over the past two seasons.
