Alberto Navarro / Translation by Matthew Goltz

Juande Ramos will coach Real Madrid for the next six months according to Director General to the Presiden't Office and Boarsd Spokesman, Miguel Ángel Arroyo. The new coach is man who has dedicated his life to football and lives and breathes the game.

New Real Madrid coach Juande Ramos has enamored the world with his constant devotion to the game, his painstaking analysis of the sport and his humilty. Juande has an impressive CV having coached his way through the ranks to reached European powerhouses. Velocity in each and every transition and constant midfield pressure best epitomize his teams.

He isn't the first coach to base his coaching know-how on a player's past. Ramos never enjoyed much success as a footballer. His willpower and elegance with the ball at his feet were cut short after suffering a knee injury.

Juande Ramos began his coaching career almost 20 years ago (1990) in the Elche acacdemy. Three years later he joined Second Division B side Alcoyano before taking over the reigns at Levante, who were promoted to Second Division under his tutelage.

Ramos left Levante to coach Barcelona B followed by Lleida and Rayo Vallecano, the latter of whom he coached to Spain's top flight after defeating Extremadura and then to a quarterfinal appearance in the UEFA Cup.

In 2001/02 Ramos was named head coach of recently-promoted Real Betis, who qualified for the UEFA Cup that same season. Stints with Espanyol and Malaga preceeded his tenure with Sevilla, where he won two UEFA Cups, one European Super Cup, one Copa del Rey and a Spanish Super Cup.

Juande then inherited a Tottenham Hotspur side in the midst of one of the club's most difficult moments in history. He was forced to adjust to a completely different style of football than that played in Spain; a difficult task which he passed with flying colors by leading the team to the 2007/08 Carling Cup. He was sacked after eight matches of the 2008/09 season. Ramos has turned the page and begins a new chapter at Real Madrid.
