Well today we learn that Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has fired the club’s academy youth director, Alberto Giraldez, for praising former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
Apparently Giraldez was at a congress in Catalonia in 2011, an event that Guardiola also attended, and the Real Madrid offered this praise to the former Barca coach:
“For all of us that love football, for all of us dedicated to the formation of players, the appearance of Pep Guardiola has been a true blessing.”
Giraldez is reportedly a confidant of Madrid president Florentino Perez but that friendship apparently was not strong enough to keep Giraldez employed.
Giraldez has a really good reputation who knows all the best up-and-coming players across Spain. I am sure that he will not be out of work for long.
