Luis Figo happened to be the big idol of the barcelonismo to turn into the most hated player of the fans of the FC Barcelona. The Portuguese accepted to change the Camp Nou by Santiago Bernabéu in the summer of the 2000 to be the first 'Galactic' of Florentino Pérez, that arrived in this moment to the presidency of the Real Madrid. This brought direct consequences for the luso, that from this moment was an enemy declared in the Barça.

In a recent interview to 'Club of the Sportsman', the lisboeta has spoken of his course of the Barcelona group. Figo thinks that nowadays is more complicated that a signing of these dimensions can give, but no it descarta. Besides, it remembers that before that he already did it several footballers without that it happened what happened with him. "It can that it was more difficult now, but at all is impossible in the football. The people remembers less than me arrived to the Barça to substitute to Laudrup, that finish of fichar by the Madrid", explained.

The also ex of the Inter of Milan insisted in this and cleared that the big does years that armour to his big stars with clauses prohibitivas so that it do not go back to suceder a new case as his. Nevertheless, it left the open door, since in his day the never thought that somebody could pay his freedom. "Who went to say 20 years ago that went to pay so much by a player. The clubs take more cautions in this sense, with the inclusion of clauses of rescission very high, but madnesses always can commit. I always thought that anybody would be able to pay my clause", recognised.

Also it took advantage of to command him a recado to the press by how heated his return to the Camp Nou in the first Classical after his course of the Barça. "It can not deny that the party went to be, say, special, but no with the dimensions that purchased. The press, logically by own interests, heated the party of the form that did it, but each one is free to act in the form that thinks", admitted.

It remembers with affection to the Madrid of 'The Galactic'

The one of Lisbon also remembered his stage in the Real Madrid of 'The Galactic'. There it coincided with Zinedine Zidane, Raúl González, Ronaldo Nazario or David Beckham in a team that won less than what expected , but to the that all the madridistas remember with affection. "It was a very beautiful period. Even the first year, still being 'alone' because I was the first signing 'galactic', win LaLiga, that on this season was very contested. The pressure always remained awake me", signalled.

The Portuguese won the Balloon of Gold in his first campaign in Madrid by his big year in the Barcelona. Figo wanted to stand out how in his period there was a lot of more options to win this prize due to the fact that they were not Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. "I agree me that 'Zizou' remained second, because I the previous year had remained second and he had won it. Then there was a lot of more candidates, no alone Messi and Cristiano, to achieve this glorious award. It was very difficult to win it", commented.

Finally, it wanted to speak of the importance that has had Christian in the history of the Madrid. His compatriot has finished turning into the maximum goleador and surely the biggest player of the history of the group merengue and Figo does not forget his contribution. "Cristiano has done big to the Madrid and the Madrid has done big to Cristiano. Any team would want to have it, because it is a player that ensures you goal, that is the most important. And no few, as well we know", finalised.
