What is the highest praise for a football club like Real Madrid than the statement that every team from this planet would want to win against it? Being founded in 1902 this club has had the time to gather some of football’s greatest stars and it surely managed that successfully. From players that will have their names forever engraved in history to contemporary players, who are fighting with each 90 minutes of playing to show their potential and win over once more massive crowds of supporters. In the entire history, Raúl holds the record for most appearances, a total of 741 played games.
Alfredo di Stefano can be easily named as one the greatest player of all times in the history of this club and his name is synonymous with Real Madrid. And since we are talking about that period we should also mention Ferenc Puskas. Among contemporary players, one name stands out: Iker Casillas. As a keeper, he has diminished every chance for the opposing team to win and as a captain he will certainly lead his team to greater victories to come. Zinedine Zidane has thought everyone about the art in football and the volley against Bayer Leverkusen stands as testimony. Even though Ronaldo has never won the Champions League, he helped Real Madrid winning the league title (2003). Talking of victories, Hugo Sanchez was the man who knew all about that, being known as the deadliest striker.
When it comes to won titles and trophies, records are at home with Real Madrid so we should stick to the most important ones:
Another extraordinary memory about this Santiago Bernabéu football club is the 2000-2006 period when the Galactic Team or Galácticos was formed. The most expensive players on the planet at that time belonged to this football club, among which: Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Luís Figo, David Beckham, Raúl, and Roberto Carlos. It was also the time when famous coach Vicente del Bosque was replaced by Carlos Queiroz.
Since 2009, Real Madrid is coached by Mourinho who was named on many occasions the greatest coach of all times. The Galácticos policy was also reinforced through the transfers of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaká by President Pérez. The year 2011 was a premier and a great joy for fans: 4 Clásicos (Real Madrid – Barcelona) were disputed in a short period of only 18 days.
The most well-known rivals for this based in Madrid football club are: Barcelona and every game between these two Spanish teams raises a global interest like no other competition so it will remain known for an eternity as El Clásico and El Derbi madrileño with Atlético Madrid – this rivalry started on 21 February 1929 and it will continue for more glorious decades to come.
When Real Madrid plays at home there is an average of 68,670 supporters on Santiago Bernabéu and this is how this football club’s real success is measured.
