Raul Gonzalez and Zinedine Zidane

Former Real Madrid striker Raul Gonzalez has given his backing for Zinedine Zidane to remain as the club’s Coach beyond this season, reports footballespana.

The Frenchman’s future has come under increasing scrutiny in the midst of a poor domestic season, yet the club are still in this season’s Champions League.

“Zizou is amazing, he is the best Coach for Real Madrid,” Raul told reporters, as cited by Diario AS.

“We want him to continue in the future for us, he has had two years leading the team with lots of success…two Champions Leagues, one league title and a lot of trophy.

“Cristiano Ronaldo? He is one of the best players in the history of football, he scores in every game, season after season.

“He now has 30 goals this season and is one of the best players in the history of football.”
