Madrid Squad are the Club’s Greatest of All-time – Says Raul
Madrid’s history-making Champions League winners are the club’s greatest of all-time, says Raul
Zinedine Zidane’s La Liga and Champions League-winning squad of 2017 is “the best in Real Madrid’s history”, according to club legend Raul.
The former striker, who netted 323 times in 741 appearances for the club, played in some useful sides during his time at Santiago Bernabeu – winning six league titles and three continental crowns.
Reflecting on a Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired 4-1 victory over Juventus on Saturday, the ex-Spain international told BeIN Sports: “A League and European Cup Double after 59 years? What we have to do is try not to leave another double for so long. There are many challenges left.”
“I think this is the best squad in Madrid’s history, but the presence of Zidane is very important.
“He was the key element for how he managed everything. Without his humility and simplicity, it wouldn’t have been possible.”
