Cox admits he's a big fan of Spanish football.
"La Liga is very well documented especially with El Classico," he told the Sunday Mercury.
"My game is based a little bit on Raul. He was never blessed with outrageous pace, and I have been given that gift as well thank you very much," he said with a smile.
"He is very clever and has ended up as one Real Madrid's all-time leading goalscorers so that didn't really harm his career.
"The whole El Classico is very exciting to watch which is why Spanish football is popular."
