Fond Farewells: Raul and Guti Exit Madrid
We certainly hope Real Madrid stocked up on tissues, as the teams two longest serving players finally said goodbye this week.
As you know, Guti’s off to flaunt his ‘creative’ take on hairdressing and equally creative fashion choices in Turkey at Beksitas, and Raul looks likely to take his tousled locks and adorable fam to the Bundesliga with Schalke. It was an emotional farewell from two players with over 400 goals, 1,200 games and 29 years between them for Los Blancos.
La Liga certainly won’t be the same without Raul’s glorious nose, inspirational ability to pro-create like there’s no tomorrow and of course, his fantastic goal scoring talent. A huge loss (in terms of our entertainment value) will be Guti’s fiesty attitude.
It’s the end of an era, Kickettes. Lets wish the lads every success at their future clubs. We’ll leave you with this from teammate Alvaro Arbeloa’s Twitter:
We’ll miss you my friend. All the best. You deserve it. We ride together, we die together. Bad boys for life..
As far as we know, Alvaro has not signed with Diddy. He’s just expressin’ his-self during this emotional time.
