Raúl will don the Real Madrid jersey once again, in June this year, against the Dutch professional club Ajax for the Corazon Classic charity game at the Bernabéu in honour of the late Barcelona player Johan Cruyff.
When Raúl left the Spanish club in 2010 he was the club’ leading goal scorer but it was later broken by the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo. Roberto Carlos, Luis Figo and Clarence Seedorf will also feature in this match alongside Raúl on the 5th of June.
In November after winning the NASL final with New York Cosmos Raúl brought his illustrious career to a close and announced retirement.
Three time Ballon d’Or winner Johan Cruyff expired on the 24th of March aged 68 after a hard fought battle with cancer.
