Mourinho's First Day Unleashes Real Revolution

In Madrid, Raul is close to royalty, and the club's leading goalscorer. Along with another club favourite, the midfielder Guti, the pair are as much a part of Real as the famous white shirts and notorious grand plans to rule the world – but it appears their reigns are at an end. Both players made their debuts here 16 and 15 years ago respectively, despite having long since stopped commanding regular first-team places. Both have survived 14 different coaches. But neither will see in the Mourinho era. Jose told them there was no need to turn up yesterday. Officially they have been allowed time to "sort out their futures" – and unofficially told not to come back.
