Raúl likens Ronaldo's arrival with that of Beckham

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Real Madrid captain Raúl has likened the impact of Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival to when David Beckham signed for the club.

The Spanish giants are in Dublin preparing for the new season, with Ronaldo set to make his debut against Shamrock Rovers at the Tallaght Stadium on Monday.

"I was as excited when Beckham started to play with us as I am with the arrival of Cristiano," Raúl told a news conference.

"I was very happy when I worked with Beckham and I think Cristiano is going to bring a lot of happiness to all the supporters.

"He will bring very good things and make a great contribution to the team."

And Raúl believes Los Merengues were right to splash out an astonishing £80 million to land Ronaldo.

"As regards the price paid for Cristiano, that's the price in the market," he said.

"There are not many Cristiano Ronaldos in the world and Real Madrid has made a great financial effort, but Real Madrid wants the best team in the world."
