i think hierro should have been given a job in madrid he could have been put in charge of their youth team,or something just to show their appreciation for all d service years,shows the stupid madrid sucks and have no place for their legends.

For me he's an argentinian maldini.He's the reason I supported Madrid few years ago.same case with hierro.

When he leave madrid for us,i couldn't stop partying,and enjoyed to see my brother's anger.

And believe wherever he play he'll bring luck for his club.
Just look at Madrid,when Redondo and Hierro weren't there,and those two morons(beckham,and ronaldo) were there.Lost is the glory days.

Hope that this fact won't be happen to us.

Despite of his fitness problems which led him not to deliever the goods for Milan, i will always remember this classic player. What i assumed from watching him play for Real and limited opportunities he had here in Milan, he was a humble man and a player with some principles. The deniel of the salary + an ever present smile just sums up character the Argentine had.

And on the pitch he was a complete mid fielder. His former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello described him as a "tactically perfect" player. Apart from Redondo's technique, he did an excellent job of reading the defence and used his skills and vision to create offensive chances, rather than scoring himself, and nobody protected the ball better than him. On his day he was a treat to watch.

Redondo defined the art technique and skills. Remember his goal at Old Trafford???

That one was a piece of magic. Sprinting with Berg to the goalline, he back-heeled the ball through the Norwegian's legs, collected it and passed to Raul who scored Real's third goal (of-course such moves are impossible to describe and if you did see it you have another reason to live, because you just don't see such moves everyday IMO).

Alex Ferguson said after the game that all loose balls that night had seemed to fall to Redondo. 'What does this player have in his boots?' Ferguson asked. 'A magnet?'

Redondo was indeed more than a playmaker - at his best, he hoovered the midfield (ask Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Guardiola, Rivaldo, Beckham, to name a few episodes they have all been made to look like boys in his presence).

Hats off to the elegant and more cultured ball provider. Alas he couldn't show all his worth in Rossonero

Good luck to Fernando Redondo

Croatian Soccer Site www.Nogomet.com just got a article about Redondo, so I'm gonna try to translate it as best as I can.
Here it is :

Argentinski nogometaš Fernando Redondo, koji je u danima svoje najveće slave igrao za madridski Real, odlučio je završiti karijeru u 35. godini, tvrdi španjolski dnevnik Marca.
Šest mjeseci nakon što je napustio Milan Redondo je odlučio prekinuti karijeru, iako je imao dosta ponuda, poglavito od španjolskih klubova.
"Nakon majice Real Madrida teško je obući neku drugu u Španjolskoj", kazao je Redondo, koji je odigrao 29 utakmica za Argentinu, a s Realom je osvajao naslove europskog prvaka 1998. i 2000.
Redondu je karijera uništena brojnim ozljedama, pogotovu nakon što ga je Real prodao u Milan za 11.4 milijuna USD. U Milanu se odmah ozlijedio, a prvu utakmicu za novi klub odigrao je tek nakon dvije godine, da bi u međuvremenu za "milaneze" nastupio u tek osam utakmica.
Argentinac je objavio kako će se trajno naseliti u Madridu, gdje će raditi kao sportski menađer.


After his glorius days in Real Madrid jersey, Argentinian Fernando Redondo has decided to finish his career at the age of 35.
After he left Milan 6 months ago, he has received a lot of offers to continue his career, especially from Spanish clubs.

"It's hard to wear other jersey that Real Madrids in Spain", he said.
He played in 29 games for Argentina and took 2 CL cups with Real Madrid in 1998 and 2000.

His career was screwed with lot of injuries, especially after Real sold him to A.C.M for 11.4$. As soon as he joined Milan, he got injured.
Redondos first game for Milan came after 2 long years, and he only played in 8 of the games for the club.
Argentinian said that he will move to Madrid where he will become a sport manager.

His smile, moments before he collapsed, will haunt me forever.

Did anybody see Redondo playing for that "Fight Against Poverty" game at the Bernabeu organized by Zidane and Ronaldo? It was so great to see him playing again, especially in front of the crowd who adored him so much.

The game was entertaining, despite of the bomb threat few days earlier/ Almost all Real quads were there plus several stelar names such as Rosicky, Panucci, Tristan, Kohler, Mauro Silva, Canizares. There were also other players from German league. And other non soccer related names such Michael Scumacher (he was good!), Carlos Sainz the spanish rally champion (he scored a penalty). Most interesting is to see former Real heroes such as Butragueno, Suker and Mihajlovic. The game ended 4-4.

Interestingly, there was no Barca player invited!

Not sure if I should post it here or in the Milan history thread...



Sorry for the Madridista video, but actualy there's no video of Redondo playing for us. And if this video exist, he wouldn't be fair to his quality, cause this guy barely played for us, he was decimated by injuries while playing here for 4 seasons until the end of his career.

Anyway, a football legend and one Milan fans should respect, even if he is on the "could have been great with us" hall.

A class player, an amazing quality, bravery, intelligence. He could do anything on the field.

@Congo

He is great.. i like him alot...
Sadly he prefer RM instead of Milan.. coz Milan made a offer to get him from Tenerife or something.. and Valdano convinced him to go to Madrid.

so i think a midfield with Redondo-Boban-Desailly-Albertini would be even more fantastic.
