REAL MADRID F.C.
Real Madrid was founded in 1902 and was honored by the FIFA as “Greatest football club of the 20th Century“, one of the reasons being the exceptional accomplishments of the club. Traditionally a strong squad with a selection of the best players in the world: Football legends like Cristiano Ronaldo (FIFA World Player of the Year 2013 & 2014), Zinedine Zidane, Alfredo di Stefano, Ferenc Puskas, Emilio Butragueno, Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos to name a few took to the field for the “greatest club in the world“.
And the list of the home-grown talents of Real Madrid is exceptional too. Not only Raul and Iker Casillas made it to the top coming out of “La Fabrica“: currently 12 players of the first squad originate from their own young talents’ academy, and more than 100 are under contract with other professional clubs all over Europe.
