Guti inching closer to Besiktas job – report

Guti inching closer to Besiktas assistant manager

The Spanish legend has been offered a job as Besiktas assistant manager next season by club president Fikret Orman.

Former Real Madrid and Besiktas midfielder Guti looks set to be appointed as the new Besiktas assistant manager after a positive meeting with club president Fikret Orman, according to reports in Turkey.

NTV Spor claim that the 41-year-old met with the club’s president recently with the view of taking a coaching position at the Vodafone Arena alongside current manager Senol Gunes, who has been in charge of the Istanbul-based since 2015.

The deal is allegedly subject to the approval of Gunes and the sorting of a few finer financial details.

The legendary former midfielder would be no stranger to Besiktas, having joined the Turkish side in 2010 whilst still a player, after deciding to leave Real Madrid after a 14-year stay. Guti won three Champions League titles and five La Liga titles among a host of other trophies during his time with Los Blancos.
