‘Raul can be Madrid’s Guardiola’

Real Madrid director Jorge Valdano believes Raul could soon become Los Blancos’ very own version of Pep Guardiola.

Raul has announced that he will retire from playing at the end of this season in order to pursue a career as a Coach.

“He is calm and I am just as excited as he is to know about his future plans,” Valdano is quoted as saying by Marca.

“Raul is a bigger admirer of the German style than the Brazilian one, so for this reason I think he will have a different approach to Guardiola.

“But yes, I think that soon he will be the Guardiola of Madrid, and I think he is preparing for that.”
