Raúl closest to Zidane's successor at Real Madrid

Bad luck haunts him this season.

The Spanish newspaper As reported that Raúl Gonzalez is the leading candidate to succeed French coach Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid. 

Real are preparing to face Deportivo Alaves on Saturday, in La Liga, where they aspire to overcome their suffering by losing the Super Cup and exiting the Copa del Rey.

The match will be played by the royal team without coach Zinedine Zidane, who was infected with the Coronavirus to join a long list of athletes who have been infected with the epidemic.

On that, Spanish sources said that Zidane returned to the spiral of instability again after the team lost in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup and then bid farewell to the Copa del Rey early.

As and Marca stated that the intention within Real Madrid at the moment is to complete Zidane's season and not resort to resolving his dismissal in the middle of the season so that the club does not suffer from chaos.

But in the event of a disaster before the anticipated Atalanta clash in the Champions League final, the dismissal could be a solution to save what can be saved.

As newspaper said that after Mauricio Pochettino took over the training of Paris Saint-Germain, Raúl Gonzalez is the candidate to succeed Zidane if he is sacked.

It is also worth mentioning that Raúl is the current coach of the Castilla team and was crowned with the youth team in the Champions League for the first time in the history of the royal club last season.
