Rafael Gordillo, verdiblanca blood

Raphael Gordillo

The half-down winger who was named the best Spanish player in the 78/79 season with Real Betis Balompié is turning 60 today, 60 to be exact. For this reason, from Coolligan we want to briefly review the history of this great player.

After five years in the lower categories of Real Betis, he managed to debut in 1977 with the first team. It didn't take long for him to stand out and he achieved a place in the hearts of the Verdiblancos fans on his own merits, having played more than 230 games with the Betic team and reaching the figure of 18 goals, he became a banner 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 the best Spanish player by the now mythical magazine Don Balón.

And then came the call from the team from the capital of Spain, Real Madrid. It was the year 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 great Spanish soccer player, he returned home in 1992.

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

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