In the two years of presidency at Real Madrid, Ramón Calderón managed to bring back La Liga and little by little he transformed the Galacticos team into what, a few years later, would have raised the "tenth". A name above all that of Cristiano Ronaldo, not everyone will know that it was the lawyer born in Palencia who had the enlightenment to chase the strongest player in the world. The story you know how it turned out. TransfermarketWeb interviewed him, exclusively, to talk about the "blancos" season finale:

Many ups and downs in La Liga, but Real can still fight to win the title. The match against Villarreal is more difficult than the one awaiting Atlético. In your opinion, will Ronaldo Nazario da Lima do Real Madrid a big favor?

"The situation is complicated for us, but the title cannot be considered lost until both games are played. Ronaldo would be of great help if he played that day in the Valladolid attack, but unfortunately it will not happen."

Real is the club that have won La Liga the most in Spanish history. But for a fan, how good can the feeling of snatching the title from Atlético's hands be?

"There is a friendly rivalry between the two teams who play in the same capital and celebrate their titles around two fountains separated by a distance of just 500m. Undoubtedly both Atlético and Real fans will find great joy on their rivals, but more than the celebrations the important thing will be to get the title of champion."
