I have no interest in Real Madrid, says Lopetegui

Porto boss Julen Lopetegui insists he has “no interest” in considering the Real Madrid coaching job.

Carlo Ancelotti’s future with the European champions has become shrouded in speculation lately, with Madrid trailing Barcelona in La Liga and facing a fight to continue their Champions League defence after a 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid in the quarter-final first leg.

Lopetegui, who masterminded a 3-1 win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday, has emerged in the Spanish media as a potential candidate to succeed Ancelotti at Santiago Bernabeu, but the 48-year-old says he is happy at the Dragao.

“There is no interest in that,” he told a press conference when asked about the Madrid rumours.

“I’m very happy to be coach of FC Porto. I feel very happy to be heading a three-year project. I’m at a great team.”

Lopetegui’s side resume domestic duties against Academica on Saturday.
