Raul Gonzalez to manage Real Madrid Castilla

Former Real Madrid striker Raul Gonzalez will be appointed as the first-team Coach at the club’s Castilla side next season, report Marca.

Raul – who enjoyed a 20-year career at the top level – won his first title as a coach when the Juvenil B team won their league title this campaign.

He has now successfully completed his UEFA coaching badges and will assume managerial responsibilities at Madrid’s de facto reserve side, the report adds.

Jose Manuel Diaz is expected to step down from his role as Castilla boss as he is not comfortable with the role and would rather be more heavily involved in coaching than management.

The Castilla compete in Spain’s third tier – the Segunda Division B – and were unsuccessful in a promotion bid to La Liga 123 this season.

Raul played in Madrid's first team for 16 seasons, winning three European Cups, two Club World Cups, a European Super Cup, six league titles and four Copa del Rey crowns.

He has previously coached the club’s Cadete B and Juvenil B teams.
