Rafael Gordillo, sangre verdiblanca

Rafael Gordillo, verdiblanca blood

The half-down winger who was named best Spanish player in the 78/79 season with Real Betis Balompié turns today, 60 to be exact. Therefore, at Coolligan we want to do a brief review of the history of this great player.

After five years in the youth ranks of Real Betis he managed to make his debut in 1977 with the first team. It didn't take long for him to stand out and, through his own merits, he achieved a place in the hearts of the green and white fans, having played more than 230 games with the Betic team and reaching the number of 18 goals, he became a standard for the Betic fans.

While he was a Real Betis player, he was called up for the first time for a match with the Spanish Soccer Team in 1978, in which he was named best Spanish player by the now legendary Don Balón magazine.

And then the call came from the team from the capital of Spain, Real Madrid. The year was 1985, where he was part of the team for no less than seven years. He played more than 180 games and scored 20 goals, winning more than 10 titles with the white team. As what he is, a Spanish football great, he returned home in 1992.

Real Betis was in the Second Division, and without any doubt, he was one of the architects of its promotion the following season, achieving third place and qualification for UEFA during successive seasons.

Years later, he ended up at Écija CF where he ended up retiring after two years, in 1996.
