You don´t have to be physically exercising your profession in Spain to get a post on Spanish Football Sports. Even less are the prerequisites if you happen to be a Spanish Football living legend like RAUL GONZALEZ BLANCO. The age old saying of "never keep a good man down" has never been so relevant as when applied to Raul & his new found "Football life" in German Football. After leaving his long time Club REAL MADRID virtually under the "has been" cloud, the player has rejuvenated at SCHALKE 04 helping the Club break records in Europe with one foot in the semi-finals of Champions League & Raul adding to his Champions League goalscoring record. 

Raul - Schalke 04

Schalke 04 won 2 - 5 yesterday reigning Champions League title holders  Inter Milan in the 1ºst leg of the Quarter-Final, with a goal from Raul included expanding his record numbers in Champions League. Here are some figures:

  • 139 games played in European Cup (Champions League). Just one game from equalling all time record holder Paolo Maldini, a feat assured if he runs on the field for Schalke 04 in the 2º leg return match
  • 70 goals scored in the European competition - Champions League. Current all time record holder 
The man keeps going, playing & scoring...

A just think, he never won a the Golden Ball, with the closet being the year Michael Owen won just ahead of the Spaniard.
