CR9 Meets Madrid

A week after Real Madrid presented their first signing, Kaka, the Madrid faithful, 80,000 of them, came back to the Santiago Bernabeu to meet the 2nd 'galactico' to arrive in Madrid.

The 80,000 strong that came in Santiago Bernabeu witnessed how CR9 began to live his dream.


Galacticos - The term used to describe Real Madrid circa 2000-2004 who boasted a roster that comprised of the worlds biggest soccer names like Zinadine Zidane, Luis Figo, Raul, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo and Raul.

This team won the La Liga title in 2000-2001 and 2002-2003 (some consider the league title that Real Madrid won in 2006-2007 signed off the era) and the UEFA Champions League in 2001-2002.

2nd Wave - The 2nd wave of the Galacticos began when Florentino Perez, the bringer of the previous Galacticos in Real Madrid, won the presidency and brought Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema to play with Real.
