Sacked Olympiakos coach Michel says he won't be returning to Real Madrid as they already have found a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti. Michel believes Zinedine Zidane will succeed Ancelotti as Real coach.
"I won't be the next candidate," Michel told Elite Sports.
"It's not that I don't feel qualified, nor that I'd not want it, but it doesn't depend on me or results. Plus, I think the club is preparing for Zidane to be the next coach."
On Ancelotti, Michel added: : "He has worked under presidents such as Berlusconi and Abramovich and he knows very well what to do when they open the dressing room door."
