The 34-year-old is seen as one with a bright managerial career, and was able to gain the qualifications required for the promotion over the summer.

He has now been promoted from first team coach to assistant manager.

Davide had been linked with other managerial jobs, but has decided to stay back at the club and work as his dad’s assistant.

In 2016, he became a full-fledged assistant coach to his father at Bayern Munich, where he impressed with his tactical knowledge and communication skills. He continued to work with him at Napoli and Everton, before returning to Real Madrid in 2021.
