Besiktas star Guti: Raul and I deserved better from Real Madrid

Besiktas star Guti feels he and former teammate Raul deserved a better farewell from Real Madrid.

Guti and Raul, who is now with Schalke, departed Real with little fanfare last month.

"You always want your departure to be special because I spent a long time here, but after not having it announced until the end of the season, the way it happened was normal. Is it true that both Raul and I needed something more. After all the time we spent here, our departures happened very fast," Guti told Onda Madrid.

"I had taken a decision a long time ago and I showed that I am clear in my ideas. I did not talk about anything with Mourinho at any time. There was no contact, because since the day I announced it, the club knew that I wanted to go. It would be ridiculous to waste time with a team that I did not want to be in."
