Tassotti to Real Madrid?

Adriano Galliani hinted Milan assistant manager Mauro Tassotti will reunite with Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

The CEO spoke to Sky Sport Italia ahead of tonight’s game with Sassuolo, which Tassotti said could well be his last at the club.

“Assistant managers form pairs with Coaches and he could form a pair with another Coach who has passed through Milan. We’ll see, anyway, it’s not certain this will be his last game.”

Tassotti was a Milan player and has been assistant manager since 2001 to Ancelotti, Leonardo, Massimiliano Allegri and now Clarence Seedorf.

“There are many reasons to leave. Stories begin and at times they don’t end. Let’s wait and see what happens,” said Tassotti this evening.

Of those tacticians, the only one who Tassotti would likely leave Milan for is Ancelotti, as they worked together for eight years at San Siro.

Ancelotti’s current assistant manager, Zinedine Zidane, is leaving Real Madrid this summer, so there is a job opening.

Another option would be following Allegri to his next job, but it's not clear where that will be.
