Mijatovic admits make-or-break time Raul

September 15, 2006

Real Madrid sports chief Predrag Mijatovic accepts Raul is struggling for form.

The Spanish striker was again taken off by coach Fabio Capello in this week's defeat at Lyon and Mijatovic said last night: "We must accept Raul is not in form. We have to consider that the last three years have been very hard for Raul, as they have for all the team, and it is true that he has dropped a level, just as what has happened to other players.

"He starts games because Capello believes in him. Raul has changed much in this preseason. He is excited again, with desire to please, to do things well. He works in training in an exemplary way.

"As sport director, my diagnosis is that this year it will be fundamental to know where we really are as far as Raul. If he can return to his best, or..."

Real Madrid coach Capello defends Raul

September 17, 2006

Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello has defended the performances of Raul in the early weeks of the season.

"It seems that here the name of the day always is Raul. I do not understand why everybody is talking about Raul. For me, he is playing well, he moves a lot, he runs, he has had opportunities," said Capello.

"He is doing good work and he is playing good games. He is ten years older and the goal sense he has always had will return."

Real Madrid's Raul defiant: Best I've been in 10 years

September 26, 2006

Real Madrid striker Raul says he's playing as well as he has been for ten years.

Coach Fabio Capello insists all Raul needs is a goal to spark his form, but the striker insists he's already playing as well as he ever has in a Real shirt.

"I believe that I have already found that spark, I believe that I have been far better than I have for ten years in that sense," said Raul.

"But even if I do score, I believe the debate and controversy around me will continue."

He added: "I am very calm and happy for being in Madrid."
