Real Madrid have announced that club legend, Raúl, will take the reins at Real Madrid Castilla after replacing ‘Díaz’ who was given the job when Santiago Solari was promoted to the first team. Former striker Raul, who scored 323 goals for Madrid and is one of their most successful ever players, has been promoted after gaining experience with the club’s academy and under-18 sides.
A club statement, which described Raul as a “legend”, read: “Raul will lead Castilla next season. Raul, who has been a coach of Cadete B and Juvenil B, will start a new professional phase at Real Madrid.”
With the decision, Real Madrid maintain their strategy of giving former players the chance to coach the second team with the hope of eventually managing the first team, which is what happened with Zidane and Solari most recently. The legendary former captain of the club holds a special level of respect among the youngsters at the club and the club knew that when taking the chance on the new manager.
