Raul Returns To Real Madrid To Become New Zidane
Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez will be returning to the club in a new position in the first week of July, according to reports in Spain.
The Spaniard is considered as one of the greatest players to play for the club in their glorious career as he made a name for himself during his stay with Los Blancos. The 39-year old was brought into the first team from the youth academy and had thrived in the senior team over two decades.
Spanish media outlet Marca reports that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez was keen to bring back the player to the club. The president believes that he needs to get back former players into some role associated with the club and Raul will be back at the club for the next season.
Although the role for Raul is yet to be confirmed, the club are confident that the legendary forward would be with Real Madrid for a considerable time. The comeback by Raul to the club meant that he will join the elite list of ex-players who are already playing a role in the progress of Real Madrid.
One of the major options that could be available for the Spaniard is to bridge the gap between the playing staff and the boardroom or he could also become assistant manager to his former teammate and current manager Zinedine Zidane in the coming days.
The Frenchman had played numerous roles at the club before taking over at Real Castilla. He then became the assistant manager under Carlo Ancelotti before taking over as manager after the sacking of Rafa Benetiz.
Apart from manager Zinedine Zidane, there are quite a number of former players that are working at Real Madrid at the moment and Santiago Solari, Guti, Alvaro Benito and Chendo, all in various roles related to coaching.
Former player Roberto Carlos works as a commentator Real Madrid TV and his countryman Ronaldo plays an important role in the functioning of Real Madrid Foundation and Emilio Butragueno is the director of industrial relations.
The return of Raul would be a welcome sign for the fans and club as they look to build on their success after having a near perfect year and half under Zidane.
