Raúl to play for Real Madrid in a charity match to honour Johan Cryuff


Raúl González will once again pull on the white shirt of Real Madrid when Ajax visit the Bernabéu for a charity match organised in honour of the late Johan Cruyff.

The legendary number seven, who left the Madrid club in 2010 as the club’s then leading scorer with 323 goals, will play alongside Roberto Carlos, Fernando Hierro, Luís Figo, Patrick Kluivert, Clarence Seedorf and Edgar Davids in the seventh edition of the Corazón Classic charity game scheduled for June 5.

Raúl’s agent, Ginés Carvajal, confirmed with the Spanish newspaper AS that the 38-year-old’s presence is 95% assured despite his commitments as La Liga ambassador in the US.
