Madrid, Feb.10 (ANI): Real Madrid are on course to end their troublesome campaign by making a strong title push in the ongoing La Liga season under the tutelage of former player Zinedine Zidane, said club legend Raul.
The Frenchman replaced Rafael Benitez as Real’s head coach at the start of January and since then has seen his side taking 13 points from a possible 15 in the competition.
“I think that the message Zidane has to offer will get through to the players, because he was a world-class player,” Raul was quoted as saying by goal.com.
“He’ll go down as one of the best ever because of what he won and how he played and he’ll be able to make the players buy into his message, having inherited a squad brimming with talent.
“He knows what people really want. Why not dream of ending this year with something to shout about?
“And, failing that, he will have to be given time so that next season all the work he is doing can bear fruit,” added the former striker, who scored 228 goals in his 550 appearances for the Spanish giants.
Real are currently third in the league table, four points behind leaders Barcelona and one point behind second-placed Atletico Madrid. (ANI)
