Raul was officially presented at Schalke today after passing the medical tests. The former Real Madrid captain will wear the same number seven as in Madrid.
Real Madrid all-time scorer signed a two years contract with the German side. Raul declared himself very excited about this new challenge. Also Felix Magath, the Schalke manager, declared himself very pleased with the arrival and praised the management for this move.
Magath believes that Raul is still a top class forward and is confident that he will help the team to win more trophies.
Football betting fans, but not only, consider him one of the greatest strikers ever. Football players with his qualities are few this days and that’s why he is so loved at Bernabeu. Even other players from rival clubs respect him and saw him as a model.
Francesco Totti declared that Real Madrid have not lost only their captain but their soul. And indeed Raul was the heart of the team , the player that not many teams have, the true leader.
Despite having this qualities Raul is a humble person. Raul has won a lot of trophies, has beaten a lot of records but probably his greatest disappointment is that he did not won the Ballon D’or.
Raul and Guti were the first big victims after Mourinho’s arrival at Bernabeu although he declared that he would have wanted Raul to stay.
