10 El Clasico Double Agents

Published

on

While all the focus will be on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in El Clasico, it will be Luis Enrique’s last as coach of FC Barcelona, and he is one of the most famous El Clasico double agents – here are nine others, including a Brazilian World Cup winner and an African.

Luis Figo is probably the most controversial El Clasico double agent, after a pig’s head was thrown in his direction following his controversial move from the Catalan giants to Los Blancos.

However, he is also one of the most successful players to have played for both clubs. The Portuguese won seven trophies at the Camp Nou and another seven at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Enrique himself won three trophies while donning the Real shirt, before switching allegiances and later claiming another seven titles with Barca.

In fact, many of the El Clasico double agents won more trophies with Barca than during their stint at Real – Albert Celades (seven trophies at Barca, six at Real), Michael Laudrup (nine at Barca, one at Real) and Bernd Schuster (eight at Barca, four at Real) are other examples.

One of the few El Clasico double agents who lifted more titles for the Madrid club than the Blaugrana is Brazil legend Ronaldo de Lima. He won three titles in his sole season at the Camp Nou, and later claimed four trophies during five injury-laden seasons with Real.

Samuel Eto’o also receives an honorary mention. The retired Cameroon captain made seven appearances as a teenager for Real, although he did not run out in an El Clasico and did not win any trophies at the Santiago Bernabeu. He later became one of Barcelona’s most lethal strikers and won eight accolades during his time with the Catalan giants.

Juventus tonight host FC Barcelona for the fifth round of the Champions League. Juve are currently three points behind Barça, and can still hope to get first place in the group, synonymous with better draw for the next round. But at the end of the match, when Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic told reporters about the future of Leo Messi, the journalists did not believe their ears.

Indeed, the situation of the Argentine international concerns leaders, fans, but also players. Messi’s contract ends in June, and he has not officially extended his lease. From January, he will be able to negotiate freely with other clubs, to the displeasure of the fans. The Croatian therefore launched a sacred statement:

« I can not say he will stay 100%. It’s his decision, you must respect it.  »
Journalists at a press conference did not hesitate to insist on getting more information but Rakitic did not comment further on the situation, saying simply that he wants to « play with him tomorrow and for the next five years « .
