Julian Nagelsmann’s dismissal from FC Bayern at the end of March caused a loud bang nationwide. Since then, there have been rumors about which coaching position the 35-year-old could be next.
Now Nagelsmann also seems to be on Real Madrid’s list. Carlo Ancelotti will step down in 2024 and become Brazil national team coach. Like the well-informed Spanish sports newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” reported, the German coach seems to be a serious option.
In addition to real legends, the name Nagelsmann also falls in the Ancelotti successor
Nagelsmann enjoys a good reputation among the Madrilenians. The trainer was already being discussed as the successor to Zindedine Zidane in 2018. In addition to Nagelsmann, “Mundo Deportivo” names other coaches, also known from the Bundesliga, as possible Ancelotti successors.
In addition to the Real club legend Raul, who is currently in charge of Madrid’s second team, the name Xabi Alonso is also mentioned. Both Raul and Alonso were extremely successful as players in Madrid and would probably start with a little bonus from the fans.
Alonso has a solid first season as Bayer Leverkusen manager compared to Raul’s experience at the professional level. According to “Mundo Deportivo”, the Spaniard is also characterized by the fact that as a player he played under the best coaches such as Benítez, Mourinho, Ancelotti, Del Bosque, Luis Aragonés and Pep Guardiola and learned something from every coach.
In addition to these names, Zinedine Zidane is also brought into play again, who already won the Champions League with Madrid as a player and followed suit three times as a coach.
