Real Madrid It is Rayo Vallecano face each other this Sunday (5), at 5pm (Brasília time), at the Santiago Bernabéu, for the 12th round of LALIGAwith live broadcast by ESPN on Star+.
The duel will mark the striker’s reunion Raúl de Tomás with the technician Carlo Ancelottiwith whom he didn’t have many opportunities…
Revealed in the Merengue club’s youth categories, Raúl never managed to continue playing and was loaned out several times.
As a result, the player played more for Real Castilla than for the main team. Among the professionals and under the command of the Italian, he played just one game, for King’s Cupagainst Cornellà, when he played for just 14 minutes.
For team B, he entered the field 62 times and scored eight goals. Even without a chance with Ancelotti, the striker has no regrets from that period.
“I will always be grateful to Ancelotti. For me and my family, he was very important,” said de Tomás, in an interview with the Spanish press after leaving the Santiago Bernabéu. “I didn’t know him very well, but he is an elite coach and a fantastic person. The way he treats the players and his ability to make decisions is impressive.”
With no chance at Real Madrid, De Tomás also spent time at Córdoba, Valladolid, Benfica It is Espanyol. Today, the striker is one of Rayo’s main players in beating the powerful former club.
“I had the option to continue when I spoke to Julen (Lopetegui), but I decided not to because I felt it wasn’t going to be part of the plans. I felt it wasn’t the ideal place and time for me.”
