On July 24, 2000, Florentino Pérez announced the hiring of the Portuguese star who left Barcelona to settle on his classic rival.
Treason in capital letters. In 1995, Luis Figo came as a stellar addition to Barcelona since Sporting Lisbon and quickly won the love of the people. But on July 24, 2000, she appeared on the other side of the truth, in the. Santiago Bernabeu and with the shirt of Real Madrid.
The Portuguese had two league titles, two King’s Cups, the Spanish Super Cup, the European Cup Winners’ Cup and the European Super Cup. However, Florentino Pérez, then president of Madrid, convinced him to wear white.
Automatically he became the man most hated by the Blaugrana fans. Every time he stepped on the Camp Nou, people not only insulted him but also threw objects at him.
Figo’s arrival at Real Madrid was the start of the Galátic era, in which the club won two LaLiga titles, two Spanish Super Cups, the Champions League, the European Super Cup and the Intercontinental Cup.
