Atletico Madrid players not good enough to play for Real Madrid - Guti

Former Real Madrid star Guti believes no player on Atletico Madrid's roster has what it takes to break into Los Blancos' starting XI this season, but has admitted Los Colchoneros are decidedly better than they were in his day.

Guti won five La Liga and three Champions League crowns with the Bernabeu side in a professional career that spanned 15 seasons and 578 matches.

Decidedly the lesser of the two clubs for most of Guti's time at Real, city rivals Atletico have vastly improved since Diego Simeone took over as coach in 2011, winning a La Liga title and reaching the Champions League final in 2014.

Simeone's side, while eight points behind leaders Barcelona in the league, are still alive in Europe following a 0-0 draw at PSV Eindhoven in their last-16 first leg clash on Wednesday. Though when asked if any of Simeone's men could see the field for Real, the former academy product couldn't see any space for them.

Atletico have made a huge leap since Diego Simeone took over in 2011.

"It would be hard. I can't think of anyone who could play for Real Madrid," the former Spain international told AS ahead of Saturday's Madrid derby at the Bernabeu.

Guti, however, did acknowledge the leap Atleti have made since his days as a player.

"In my time to play at the [Vicente] Calderon it was an easy game against them. With 'Cholo' things are now much more complicated," Guti said.

"Atletico is one of Real's biggest rivals, but as a Madridista I like for them to always lose."
