Still, as a result, his position is certainly more difficult, but Ruben de la Réd believes that if Raul is in charge of the affairs of the first team in the Spanish capital, then he will be more than qualified to do so.

Raul’s tactical organization and the ability to guide the team is impressing

Defeats to Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk did not threaten the safety of Zinedine Zidane’s work at Real Madrid. Still, as a result, his position is certainly more difficult, but Ruben de la Réd believes that if Raul is in charge of the affairs of the first team in the Spanish capital, then he will be more than qualified to do so. As the current coach of Castilla, Raúl has impressed with his tactical organization and the ability to guide the team towards their first-ever UEFA Youth League success. The condition of Real Madrid could get worse with the defeat on Saturday’s El Clásico, and then questions may arise about the future of the French coach. “I have a feeling that if Raul has to coach Real Madrid in the future. He is qualified to do so and will succeed,” explained De la Red in an interview.

“We will have to analyze why this situation happened. Zidane will certainly know about it and try to solve it. I was surprised by the losses because the team was good at the start of the season. But with COVID-19 and the conditions that surround it, we need to adapt”. Having played Clásico during his playing career, unfairly cut short by a heart problem, De la Red believes that the intensity of the match cannot be the same in an empty stadium. “It will not be the same environment and atmosphere as when you go out on the court, and the stands are full of spectators,” added De la Red. “The team who is better prepared mentally will be the one with the best chance of taking all three points.”
