They didn’t win the UEFA Champions League (although everyone expected them to win the much expected “la Décima” for Real Madrid).
They didn’t win a domestic double let alone a treble.
But when you see the line up, you will surely feel some shivers in your spine.
Even the word “Galácticos” doesn’t fit their status because they weren’t from even this Galaxy (but Papá Florentino Perez deem it fit to call them that way).
The “Galácticos” of 2005–6..
Zidane (present R.M coach), Figo, Raúl (present La Casilla coach) Beckham, Ronaldo Nazario de Lima, Roberto Carlos, Guti, Salgado, Santiago Solari( ex Madrid coach) Hierro, and goalkeeper Iker Casillas
What a team!!!!
It had 5 world best players at that time who were also captains of their national teams.
Euro 2004 saw four Real Madrid players captain their national team.
Zidane- captain France.
Figo- captain Portugal.
Beckham- English captain.
Raúl- el Capitan de España.
Football have never arranged such an array of talents.
Looks like a Hollywood blockbuster movie.
I bet Steven Spielberg is cooking something.
