Figo: “Raúl was a winner and had a little bit of everything”

first_imgThe Portuguese Luis Figo reviewed his career with the Italian Fabio Cannavaro in a live Instagram, and they talked about great players with whom they shared a team like Ronaldo Nazario or Zinedine Zidane, but he stayed with Raúl González, “a winner”.“In my career I have played with great footballers. It would be easier to choose one by demarcation than to stay with just one. I played with Ronaldo, Zidane, Rivaldo, Stoichkov, Guardiola, Hierro, Verón and with whom I was always prepared to score, Raúl “, assured the Portuguese.“Raúl was a winner, because of his mentality he has conquered so much in his career. He always knew how to define and how to move in the field. If you talk about Ronaldo his characteristics are speed and power but with Raúl it is difficult to decide the best, but it had a little bit of everything. He always scored a goal and made a difference “, added.Recalling his change from Barcelona to Real Madrid, in the first elections won by Florentino Pérez, Figo admitted that a key point to take the step was that He did not feel valued at the Catalan club. “It was an important and difficult decision, because I changed from a city that gave me a lot and where it was good; But when you don’t feel that you are recognized for what you are doing, if you have a proposal from another club, you think about it. But I needed the recognition of those who managed Barcelona: when you don’t receive it, if you have another proposal, think about it. All started like this. The president told me “bring the money and go”: if you say so, you get angry, especially if you try to give it your all. That summer I was also able to go to Lazio, which was strong and had the money: they wanted to pay my clause. I chose well, I was looking for a team that had great objectives: it didn’t go wrong, “he admitted.“The great clubs of the world are similar, the main difference is the people who form society, because I came to Madrid with a major change in the presidency and at the beginning it was not easy. It was all new to me, but the integration was good and with the help of everyone I adapted quite well, “he added.Cannavaro sees Figo as the next UEFA president and the Portuguese, although he did not rule it out, assured that he is happy with his current work and being an ambassador for Euro 2020. “At the moment I’m fine with the work I’m doing, I am learning a lot and in the future it will be seen “.last_img read more
