Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez was 'Messi and Cristiano rolled into one': Ex-Atletico goalkeeper Leo Franco

Raul spent 16 years in La Liga and netted 229 goals during that time.

Leo Franco names him the best forward in his opinion and says that was like Messi and Cristiano in one package.

"The best forward for me was Raul Gonzalez. He was like Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo rolled into one. He was terrific," former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Leo Franco has told MARCA.

Raul was a great forward indeed but it's still sort of crazy to compare him to Ronaldo and especially to Leo Messi. The Spaniard bagged 229 goals in La Liga (Messi has 447) despite playing only as a centre-forward and making more league appearances than Messi – 550 against Messi's 492.
