A favorite stands out among Zinedine Zidane’s substitutes at Real Madrid.
With Zinedine Zidane’s departure confirmed to the club, Real Madrid have already started working to replace him.
It won’t be easy, given Zidane’s huge presence at the club, but Los Blancos are already on the move. Right now, as the Spanish press reports, Raul Gonzalez is the first choice to lead the team next season.
Massimiliano Allegri and Joachim Low are the other options, but Raul is the main contender. He is seen as the natural replacement, in order to continue the Frenchman’s work, and he would bring his character and pace to work with him.
Raul is ready – he has proven it with Real Castilla – and he understands this team and this club better than anyone.
As it makes sense, he’s not the only name to have come up at board meetings, but he’s a favorite of almost every Real Madrid director.
Starting his career at Al Sadd while taking coaching courses, he joined Real Madrid coaching roster with the youth squads in 2018 and has grown steadily stronger.
Last summer, Raul won a historic first UEFA Youth League trophy for the club, and now he leads Castilla in a push to win promotion to the Segunda division.
His hard work on the pitch earned him applause on the pitch and he upheld those values as a coach. The success that Raula has also attracted the attention of other European clubs, with Schalke, where he has already played, after calling him in mid-season, and Eintracht Frankfurt in particular.
