Javier Clemente: I had Real Madrid offer

Javier Clemente insists he has no regrets not taking charge of Real Madrid.

The former Spain coach admits he came close to taking the job.

He revealed: “I was about to train Real Madrid with Ramón Mendoza, but I was in Athletic and I could not go. I do not regret it.

"I was very close to Ramón. Notice, being at Atlético de Madrid I argued with him, being his intimate friend, to defend Jesus Gil. I didn't argue with him, I defended Jesus Gil when they had a very big confrontation because I was his coach."
