Ronaldo Not Real Madrid’s Best Ever Player, Raul Is – Carvajal
Despite Cristiano Ronaldo being Real Madrid’s record highest goalscorer by number and by minute per goal, former teammate, Dani Carvajal doesn’t consider the Portuguese the club’s best ever player.
Although Carvajal rates Ronaldo highly, the Spanish defender believes former Spain striker Gonzalo Raul remains the greatest player to ever represent Real.
Asked who he saw as Real’s best player of all time, Carvajal replied: “Raul. I identify with him a lot.
“He is a squad player, a player who won everything based on work and effort.
“I think it’s not the player that you say, He’s the fastest, he’s the one who has the best control of the ball, the one who better heads-up”.
“But he did everything right. For the goals he has done, for what he has given Real Madrid, for me – he is the flagship player of Real Madrid.”
Ronaldo left Real having scored 450 goals at a rate of more than one per game.
Raul, who is Real’s second most prolific scorer in history, ended his career with 323 goals, which came at a rate of 0.41 per match.
