Exclusive - Ramón CALDERON: "La Liga is complicated, winning a title in Madrid is a must. Zidane? It's hard to find a successful substitute (2)
If Real Madrid don't win the league, what's your general opinion on the season?
"At Real Madrid, winning a title every season is not a success, it is an obligation and the fans demand this. It is clear that not winning anything would be a disappointment for everyone. For this reason, it would be considered a bad season."
The historic group of the three Champions League titles in a row, Ramos-Modric-Kroos-Casemiro-Benzema, is no longer very young. How can this team be renewed?
"Hiring new stars will not be easy due to the economic situation the club is going through due to the pandemia and the large investments in the construction of the stadium. I suppose the president will study the search for some new source of income to approach the new signings. In any case, we have several young people, who come from the cantera, and who have already played in the first team with very satisfactory performances. They can also be the future."
If Zidane leaves, there is talk of Juventus or France, would you like Massimiliano Allegri?
"I hope Zidane continues as a coach. Allegri is a good coach, but otherwise it will be difficult to find a replacement who is as successful as he is."
One last comment on Cristiano Ronaldo: do you think he could leave Juventus?
"I don't know. The result of the season for his team, and for him, has been disappointing, and this has never been liked by the great players who are used to winning titles every season."
