Imanol, still no offer to renew, before his black beast


Imanol It has an immediate challenge and a more long-term one. The first consists of defeating on Sunday for the first time what is his black beast in recent years, Barcelona. The second is to become the first coach in Real history to guide the team to Europe for the fourth consecutive season. And right now he has to do it without his future tied up. And this is it, with 10 months to go before his contract with Real expires, the coach has yet to receive any renewal offer.

In the days before Christmas 2020 when Real made official the contract extension until 2023 of the coach from Oriotarra. Time passed without new contacts, among other things because Real had the certainty that there would be no problem defending their coach when the time came. However, and logically, the work and evolution of the txuri urdin coach has not been noticed beyond the Gipuzkoa muga. Along with its acquisition of land and experience, Imanol He is also strengthening his position on the bench at Real, which he has always wanted, as he admits. It is understood that the club, which is very satisfied with his work, will formulate a proposal before January, the month in which the coach is free to negotiate with any team.

Desire for ‘vendetta’

It’s because of their style of play, but Barcelona is the team that chokes the most Imanol because he is the coach of the first team. The txuri urdin squad does not play well or win against the culé on a regular basis, so there is some impatience among the Real Madrid technical staff to reverse this trend.

The numbers are stubborn: in new games against Barcelona,​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ​​ ​​in future. He is the only opponent in the First Division that Imanol has not beaten, along with Sevilla. In the League, the only time the txuri urdin squad ‘scratched’ against the culé was in the 2019/20 campaign, in that match which ended 2-2 at Anoeta with goals from Oyarzabal punishment and Isaac.

Barça, moreover, dealt a heavy blow to a group as unaccustomed to receiving them as Real. Last year, for example, they defeated txuri urdin 4-2 in the debut of the league and in the previous one, they defeated Imanol’s team (1-6) in Anoeta in the match before the Cup final.

Time to activate another lever. To beat Barça, which Real often used from 2007 to 2017
