The Real Madrid legend who became a goal machine after he retired

Real Madrid have produced a number of goal machines over the years.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the most recent in a long line of world-class strikers, following in the footsteps of Ferenc Puskas, Ronaldo and Raul.

But one player who wasn’t associate with scoring goals during his professional career has decided to take it up after retiring. You read that right.

Michel Salgado featured in a Spain legends team that featured in the Star Sixes tournament at the O2.

Despite being a solid full-back in his playing days, Salgado was crowned the tournament’s top goalscorer, with nine – yes, nine – goals.

Salgado played 254 La Liga games for Real Madrid over ten years, only scoring four times for Los Blancos. He’s more than doubled that in one legends tournament.

Spain finished third in the tournament, with France beating Denmark in the final to lift the trophy.
