‘Madrid peace depends on results’

Luis Figo told Rafa Benitez he’ll get a smooth ride at Real Madrid only when results are consistently good, and that’s always the way at Santiago Bernabeu.

Former Madrid winger Figo was speaking during an appearance on Onda Cero’s Al Primer Toque and discussed the situation at his old club, with the Coach under pressure.

“Peace in this team doesn’t exist for a Coach because this team depends on results, but when you come to this club you know that,” AS quotes the Portuguese as saying.

“The League is long, many months of competition and in the last few years there have been three teams fighting for the title.

“Within these months there are always ups and downs of the teams that have the most possibilities.”

Figo was asked about the Madrid team of which he was part, the ‘Galaticos’, and how they compare to today’s roster.

“You can’t compare them because it’s not the same players and the same opponents,” he replied.

“With all due respect I prefer my team because I played in it and I enjoyed it, but each team makes its own history with the titles won on the field.

“I enjoyed playing and now I enjoy it when Madrid plays a fantastic game.”
