Upon sacking Carlo Ancelotti as Real Madrid coach, club president Florentino Perez offered the solace that the 10th boss of his reign in charge will be named next week.That confirmation has eliminated any doubt that remained among the Spanish media that the next man to face the task of living up to Perez's highest of standards will be current Napoli boss Rafael Benitez.The decision has been likened to Perez's sacking of Spain manager Vicente del Bosque in 2003 despite having won La Liga and a year after winning the Champions League.Ironically it was as Del Bosque's assistant that a fledgling Benitez took his first steps in management as Real's B team coach and assistant to Del Bosque when he took temporary charge for the final four months of the 1993-94 season.
