Butragueno quits Real after regime change

MADRID, July 5 (Reuters) - Former Real Madrid striker Emilio Butragueno has quit as vice-president and sporting director after Ramon Calderon's victory in the presidential election.

Butragueno returned to Real in January 2000 when he was appointed as an assistant to sporting director Jorge Valdano by then club president Florentino Perez.

He took over as sporting director when Valdano left the club in June 2004 and was later named as a vice-president.

Three trophy-less seasons have taken their toll on the ex-Spanish international and newly elected president Calderon has appointed another former player Predrag Mijatovic as the club's new sporting director.

'I'm sure Pedja (Mijatovic) and (new coach) Fabio Capello will form a great team,' Butragueno told the Real Madrid website.

'Capello is the sort of coach that can make a difference and the squad isn't as bad as people think. With the signings they are going to make I'm sure the club will have a very competitive team next season.

'This is a great club even though the recent results of the first team have made us suffer.'
