Raul happy for chance to say 'thank-you' to Real Madrid fans

Real Madrid legend Raul is delighted to have the chance to say his thank-yous to fans for tonight's Bernabeu Trophy.

Raul's Al Sadd will face Real in the game to honour the former Madrid captain.

"It's going to be an emotional game as I'm coming to play with my current team. I no longer play at the highest level but I'm eager to pull on a Real Madrid shirt again. Three years ago I didn't get to say goodbye to everybody as I would have liked to.

"I'm touched that it's a sell-out crowd. Real Madrid gave me everything and there's going to be a party atmosphere. I'm very happy to be back at what I consider my home. I hope it's a great game. My teammates are thrilled."
