Raul Gonzalez’s progress in the early days of his coaching career hasn’t gone unnoticed.
As a result of his work so far, Eintracht Frankfurt have come knocking on the Spaniard’s door, months after his former club Schalke had done the same as they sought to survive relegation.
Having won the Youth League, Raul is one step away from getting Castilla promoted to the Segunda Division. This season, as well, has been made more complicated for the former Real Madrid captain with Zinedine Zidane having to call players up to the first team due to injury problems.
As reported by Spox, Eintracht want Raul involved to replace Adi Hutter, who is off to Borussia Monchengladbach.
Initial contact has already taken place, but talks have been put on hold until eh end of May, with the Castilla boss fully focused on the job at hand as he goes in search of promotion. Luka Jovic and his teammates in Frankfurt, meanwhile, are aiming to qualify for the Champions League.
On top of all of the above, Raul’s decision will likely be determined by what Zidane decides to do. The Frenchman hasn’t confirmed whether or not he’ll stay in his job beyond the summer.
MARCA revealed recently that, as well as Joachim Low and Massimiliano Allegri, Raul would be a candidate to replace Zidane should he walk away from the club.
