Zinedine Zidane knows that he's one of Florentino Pérez's favorites to coach Real Madrid one day. It's true that Raúl just retired from football but Zidane could have a chance before Raúl makes a decision about his future. Zidane spoke and said that he's happy with Castilla right now.

"Will I coach Real Madrid? We will see, right now it is not my priority. I like Benítez for our team and he's doing a great job," said the French legend.

"For the moment I'm living a dream in Castilla, the team is playing well and we're leading the table. You're asking me about the future but nobody knows what will happen," he added.

Players like Borja Mayoral, Enzo Zidane and Martin Ødegaard are the leaders of Zidane's Castilla, a team looking to promote to Segunda División after being relegated two seasons ago. It's never easy to get that promotion but Zidane and his youngsters will try their best.
