Gullit doesn’t think Mourinho will replace under fire Solari at Real Madrid

Ruud Gullit doesn’t think that Jose Mourinho would be willing to replace Santiago Solari at Real Madrid at the moment, simply because there is nothing left for the Spanish giants to play for.

It has been an absolute shambles of a season for the 13-time European champions, who are well out of the title race, sitting 12 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona after losing eight of their 26 league games this season.

They were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by their Classico rivals last week, with their latest humiliation coming last night when they hammered 4-1 by Ajax as they were dumped out of the Champions League.

Speaking about Los Blancos’ current plight, former Chelsea midfielder Ruud Gullit thinks that Santiago Solari will be pretty nervous about his job.

“[Solari] has to be afraid for his job,” Gullit said on beIn Sports.

“They were humiliated against Barcelona and then this happens. How are they going to resolve this?

“Who is going to step in? No-one wants to step into this.”

Since being sacked by Manchester United back in December, Jose Mourinho has been touted as a front-runner to return to the Bernabeu, but Gullit doubts that the Portuguese will be making a move to the Spanish capital in the immediate future.

“[Mourinho] won’t step in now, I don’t think he will step in now,” he added.

“I can’t believe that he would step in now, there’s nothing to gain, there’s nothing to win.”

Mourinho himself recently discussed Brendan Rodgers move from Celtic to Leicester, saying he would prefer to take on a new job at the start of a season.
