Real Madrid Transfer News: Mourinho's Added Power Gives Club a Bright Future
If Jose Mourinho is going to live and die by the success of Real Madrid, the least the club can do is allow him to have final say over the state of the roster.
Los Blancos did just that, giving the manager a shiny new position that allows him to mold the future of the Spanish giants however he sees fit.
The club has tried its hardest to top Barcelona on the world stage, with little success to show for it. Giving Mourinho full reign over personnel decisions allows a top football mind to fill the holes in his roster.
The fact that Zidane is his right hand mind is just icing on the cake.
The Portuguese coach, who had a public feud over transfers with former director general Jorge Valdano before he was fired this summer, will now work alongside Zinedine Zidane on all matters football after the legendary ex-player was named director of football.
"The board of directors of Real Madrid met (on Thursday) to confirm the new hierarchy of the club," Real announced in a statement.
"This includes a single director general - Jose Angel Sanchez - a presidential advisory role for director Manuel Redondo and the naming of Jose Mourinho as the director of football operations."
Los Blancos brought Mourinho in to change the culture of the club, and it would be unfair of Real Madrid to keep the manager on the sidelines while the powers that be made signings that reflected the team's past.
This offseason, the football power opted to make signings geared toward the future instead of focusing on high-priced moves for established players. That was the old Real Madrid. Now that Mourinho is in charge, Los Blancos have crafted the team much like Barcelona has in recent years.
With the young talent at the Bernabeu, the manager has a plethora of talent at his disposal, giving him a squad that has a chance to challenge their rivals on the world stage.
In recent years, that type of talk has proven to be nothing but needless hype, but this summer, there is a different vibe around Los Blancos.
Mourinho earned his position within the club, and will continue to do so, as he brings in top talent each and every summer.
