On this episode of the Managing Madrid Podcast, Ruben Skjerping and Hridyam Arora discuss:

  • Another loss, meaning that the fight for direct promotion could be over
  • Does the team lack experience? Does the club need to recruit older players in order to get Castilla promoted?
  • The wing-back situation
  • Is Álvaro ready to be the first team’s backup striker on a permanent basis?
  • The state of the refereeing in Spain
  • What would be better for Arbeloa: coaching Castilla, or being Ancelotti’s assistant?
  • And more.
