Schalke forward, who gave a news conference in Madrid, said that "football needs Guardiola."
Raúl González Blanco maintains a personal relationship with Pep Guardiola, despite having been both the banners of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. The current forward of Schalke 04, about to play his last game for the German club, was categorical when asked about the future of Guardiola, pending renewal, or not as Barça coach. "Football needs to Guardiola and he will make the best decision," said the former captain merengue.
Raúl also spoke of the playoff semi-finals of the Champions League. Barça said that "the best do not always win and that is one of the attractions of the sport. Although Chelsea did their merits to be in the final footballing was a winner and will not be in the final." Real Madrid-Bayern Raul said it was "a more balanced tie." (via MD)
