Former Real star Guti retires
Former Real Madrid midfielder Guti has announced his retirement from football.
The 35-year-old ex-Spain international, who made almost 400 first-team appearances in almost 25 years at the Bernabeu, has been without a club since leaving Besiktas in November.
In a statement published on Marca's website this evening, he said: "The decision has been made. I have received offers but I've decided to stop. I can now spend more time with my family.
"I'm going to train to become a sporting director or a coach and I'd like to train youngsters," he added. "I'd really like to coach the Real Madrid youth team. That's my dream."
