Former Real Madrid‘s Raul Gonzalez was massively criticized by the fans after praising the rivals, FC Barcelona.
The Spanish legend defended himself saying that he has to be neutral when it comes to analyzing both clubs performances.
In an interview with “Sport” magazine, Raul said: “No one can deny my belonging to Real Madrid. I’ve been serving the club for 17 years. Things become different when it comes to my work as football analyst. For example, it’s fair to say that Barcelona have shown a good level in the last years”.
Raul added: “They proved that they are more regular than Real Madrid on the local level. On the European level, both clubs have the same value in the last years”.
