Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has said the club’s Coach Zinedine Zidane is the best man for the job.
The legendary former goalkeeper – who is still playing for FC Porto – was speaking after Madrid’s 1-0 victory at Sevilla on Sunday evening.
That result put Los Blancos joint top of La Liga with Athletic Club Bilbao on 11 points – despite Zidane coming under increasing pressure in his role.
“Zidane is the most (suitable for the Madrid job),” Casillas wrote on his Twitter account.
“Some will discuss if he has a flower (luck) but there will be no talk of a possible replacement on the bench. Nor that there was a bad management of the club for betting with veteran people who could be satiated with success. Nor those young people who are the immediate future.”
Casillas is one of the most decorated players in Spain’s history, playing over 700 games for Madrid before joining Porto in 2015.
He won three Champions Leagues with the capital giants, as well as two European Championships and a World Cup in his 167 caps for La Roja.
