Raul hints at Real future as Zidane tipped to leave

Real Madrid great Raul has said his future is at the club following Spanish media reports that current coach Zinedine Zidane is to leave at the end of the season.

Raul, who scored 323 goals for the club between 1994 and 2010, has spent the last two years as a coach in Real’s youth system, taking the under-19s last season and the reserve team this campaign. His side missed out on promotion to the second division after a 0-0 draw at Ibiza yesterday and the former Spain striker was asked if he would end up becoming first team coach next season after reports Zidane has decided to leave. “This is my home and where I want to be. But it’s not the time to talk about anyone’s future,” Raul told reporters. Raul left Real in 2010 to continue playing in Germany with Schalke 04 and then in Qatar with al-Sadd before ending his career with the New York Cosmos. The 43-year-old has been linked with a move to German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt but said he was committed to Real.
