Ramos replaces Schuster ahead of Barcelona game

Real Madrid has announced that manager Bernd Schuster has been dismissed and that he will be replaced by former Tottenham, Sevilla and Barcelona B manager Juande Ramos, who has signed a contract until the end of this season.

He's praying for mercy already... Don't know about this guy. Did some wonderful things with Sevilla but wasn't impressive working at Tottenham. I don't think any coach can lift the Madrid squad as it is now (could be different after the january transfers).

it will be a much harder game this week end. they're all going to be fired up to impress the new coach. with ramos in charge i predict a good second half of the season for madrid. they're going to buy some player and they also going to look better physically and this usually means less injuries. should be interesting next week end.

that was the worst move they could have done... you DON'T replace your coach ahead of an el clasico or any other important game.... I believe that Ramos is a mediocre trainer and the only good thing about that would be Barca scoring 5-6 goals....

This could be the Madrid line-up (if Sneijder and Drenthe don't get fit):


Salgado Metzelder Cannavarro Ramos

Guti Gago van der Vaart

Higuain Saviola Raul

Looks like a really weak team to me...

Gago will not play because he is suspended.He took 5 yellow cards and he will miss el clasico!

That's Marcelo. I don't think Gago is suspended.

The only player barcelona should try to sign in january

would be ryan babel

or try to buy in the summer

first off his young can play in the forward line usually playing left wing is tall and fast also wants to leave liverpool and can really be seen as a bargain and he is familiar with the 4-3-3 system

txiki an barcelona ryan babel is your man it would be a very good and very smart buy

wrong time mate. He should have taken the job after the clasico.. not a good way to start Ramos

I hope he will be successful as much as he have been in Tottenham. Under his helm they can only go down. Well, that's my wish, but, to be honest, he is adapted to Primera. His players will do everything to show their best in front of his eyes at Classico. The only thing that must be important ahead of this game is NOT to underestimate RM. That would be bad. Good thing is that Barca is unbeatable at this moment and that should guarantee the new 3 points next weekend.

P.S. Talking about Babel, he really is excellent player, but I don't think Liverpool would sell him.
It's frustrating (to me) that Barca miss to get such a players like Babel, Torres and especially Ribery.

In the recent years, RM manager can sit on the post for 1 season only regardless of whether the team won the league or not. Very poor management.

It had to be Schuster's "no team can win at Camp Nou..." attitude that was the deciding factor...

Well, based on his transformation of Sevilla, and his will to play good football, its a good ploy for the entertainment value of La Liga, but one of the reasons he did so badly at Spurs, and even Daniel Levy admitted it, is that he failed to get the respect of the majority of his players, and thus had to go sadly, because they werent motivated. Madrid is a team known for having a diva esque mentality, so Im not sure he's the right coach for the right job.
