According to The Sunday Telegraph, sacked Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster is eager to become the new manager of the Premier League club Sunderland.
Schuster was sacked by Real Madrid last week after a series of dismal performances by the reigning Spanish champions. He was given the green signal to leave the Bernabeu on Tuesday and the Blancos immediately recruited the former Sevilla and Tottenham Hotspur boss Juande Ramos as their new coach for until the end of the season at least.
Now it has emerged that the German is eager to try himself in England and has raised his hand for the still vacant Sunderland job. Sunderland are still to decide whom to appoint as their new manager after they parted compay with Roy Keane.
Would Schuster be the right man? He did some wonderful things at Spanish minnows Getafe and led Madrid to the league title in Spain last season. So he does possess the pedigree, doesn’t he?
But does he possess the mentality to manage a struggling Premier League club?
