Raul scored two goals in Real Madrid's 4-2 win over Real Valladolid, thus celebrating his ascent to the top of Los Merengues' appearances list in style.
Having been presented with a trophy before kick-off, Raul scored two early goals. Speaking to Marca after the game, he said, "I am happy, but mostly I am proud that we obtained three important points."
"I never thought of achieving this. It will soon be 15 years since I made my debut, and it was very difficult to think of this figure.
"I am very pleased, and I want to continue to help my team-mates and the club. But I am already thinking about Wednesday, when we have an important European game that we must prepare for."
Raul then conceded that it had not been a perfect performance, continuing, "We are not playing consistently for 90 minutes."
"We begun very well, than Valladolid scored and caused tension. We did not know how to handle the game.
"Scoring four goals looks great, but we had our difficulties. We have a new project, with many different ideas and people.
We must be patient. We have only lost one game, in Seville.
"This is a long season, and we must be on top in May."
