Hi Koura – Journalist Diego Plaza talked about the possibility of Raul Gonzalez taking over the job of coaching Villarreal at this stage, and how important this step is for his coaching career after that.
Plaza said the following during his statements on the “Chiringuito” program:
“Going to coach Villarreal does not keep Raul away from Real Madrid, as some say.”
“If things go well there and the results are positive, maybe Raul’s situation will be similar to Xabi Alonso’s situation with Bayer Leverkusen.”
It is an indication from him that this step will be an ideal opportunity for Raul to convince Real Madrid of his coaching abilities, and will even qualify him to compete for the position of coach with Xabi Alonso, who has been providing very distinguished performances with Bayer Leverkusen since the middle of last season.
