Could Have Been Raul Deal

Real Madrid legend Raul has revealed that he held talks with Juande Ramos while he was still at Spurs. The Spaniard says he is a fan of the Premier League, and talked to the former Spurs boss about life at White Hart Lane, since the pair share the same agent.

Raul told Digital Plus: “Four months ago, Juande and I had a meal with Gines Carvajal, who is our agent and a friend of mine.

“They called me because I like English football and I wanted Juande to tell me about his experience of Tottenham and of The Premier League.

“He is a football man and speaking with him is a pleasure.

“A chain of events meant that he was sacked and then Madrid were interested in him. The fact that we share the same agent led to unfortunate interpretations.

“Juande is a winning coach and he has proved that he is good enough to manage Real Madrid.”

This news epitomizes what was wrong with the previous regime as, had Ramos been in full control of the club’s transfer policy, we could have been looking at a completely different side. Raul and Diego Capel could have made a huge difference to the side, has the former gaffer been given the omnipotence he deserved.
