Guti happy with new president

Real Madrid midfielder Guti said the change in presidency augers well for the future of the Spanish giants on Thursday. He is confident that new president Ramon Calderon will allow the club to strengthen their squad in a more balanced way following the flawed transfer policies of Florentino Perez.

"This year the club is looking for people in every position, trying to establish some balance, so that Real is not just six names who sell lots of shirts and don't win anything," Guti told a news conference on Thursday.

"You don't need to look any further than the World Cup where everyone thought Brazil were the favourites but Italy went on to win playing as a team."

Calderon was elected president two weeks ago and has publicly distanced himself from the policies pursued by Perez, who quit in February after six years at the helm.
