Raul: Aragones was ‘extraordinary’

Former Real Madrid and Spain forward Raul has described Luis Aragones, who passed away aged 75 on Saturday, as ‘extraordinary’.

In a statement to a news agency, Raul, now a player with Al-Sadd, expressed his sympathies on the death of the Euro 2008-winning Coach.

“To his wife, children and family I offer my embrace, my support and my condolences.

“He was an extraordinary Coach and will be remembered as a great in world football.”

Raul’s international career came to an end under Aragones, who declined to pick Raul for the 2008 tournament.
