As Zidane casts doubt on his future, Raul and Löw are the two names emerging to replace him at Real Madrid.
He still has a contract until 2022, yet the future of Zinedine Zidane is on everyone’s lips on Madrid’s side. Returned two seasons ago after a parenthesis of a season, the French coach offered himself the title of champion of Spain last season but chapter 2 (or 3 if we take his playing career) with the Casa Blanca does not unleash the same passions as its first time on the bench.
Often questioned and on the verge of leaving his post a few months ago before an almost miraculous qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League, Zidane is the first to cast doubt on his intentions. Often questioned about his future, the 98 world champion prefers to focus on the present moment than to speculate.
“I’m not looking beyond what I’m doing now. I’m not planning anything at all. You can sign for ten years here and tomorrow be out. And the other way around, you can sign for a year and be there. for ten. I’m motivated by this season and the rest are discussions I don’t want to get involved in. “, Zizou said at a press conference last Friday on the eve of the trip to Vigo (3-1).
Nevertheless, on the side of Real Madrid, we are already starting to think about the post-Zidane. If Florentino Perez carries the 1998 Ballon d’Or high in his heart and will surely never push him to return his apron, the Madrid president is thinking about possible replacements according to AS. The first leads to the club itself and to Raul.
Like his former teammate, the Spaniard started his coaching ranges with the youth teams of Real and then took charge of Castilla with whom he had success with in particular a Youth League which was dropped last season. Is he ready to take the plunge?
Maybe yes, but Real Madrid would also have positioned themselves on a coach with more bottle, in the person of Joachim Löw. The German coach has announced that he will leave the Maanschaft after Euro 2020 this summer, and since this announcement his name has been associated with major European clubs. Real Madrid have not escaped this.
