Raul introduced as a Schalke player....weird

Today began a new era for one of Spain's greatest players as Raul officially joined German club Schalke. Raul who is Spain's all time leading goal scorer ended his 18 year tenure with Real Madrid on Monday. Although his release from Real had long been speculated, it was still a bit of a shock for long time football fans to see captain Madrid announce that he was leaving the club. Although he has burned Manchester United and England a few times I always had to tip my hat to his skill and class on the pitch.

He leaves Real Madrid having scored 323 goals in 740 appearances for the legendary club. He also won 6 La Liga titles, 3 Champion League titles and 1 UEFA Super Cup. He will be forever linked with the club he helped revive on the European stage. Now he embarks on his German league challenge, here's hoping he can have the same amount of success he did at Madrid, though it don't think that will be the case.

I've added a video of his best goals, plus photos of his Schalke intro.
