01/02/2014 El Madrid guardó un minuto de silencio por Luis Aragonés
Aragonés spent the majority of his career as a player and coach at Atlético Madrid. He was a prominent player and then coach of the successful Atlético team of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The team won La Liga four times, reached the final of the European Cup and won the Intercontinental Cup. Between 1964 and 1974 he played 265 La Liga games for Atlético and scored 123 goals. Aragonés coached the club on four separate occasions. He also played with several other clubs, most notably Real Betis, and played 11 times for Spain, scoring three goals. Apart from Atlético he also coached seven other La Liga clubs as well as the Spanish national football team whom he led to their second European Championship title in 2008. He became the head coach of the Turkish football team Fenerbahçe after Euro 2008, and this was the sole time that Aragonés has coached outside of his native Spain.R.I.P Luis Aragonés
"He could defend, he could attack, he could run, he could head the ball and use both right and left feet. He played all over the pitch. Alfredo Di Stéfano was the most complete player ever, something I have never seen anywhere else and I have seen a lot of players”
-Jose Santamaria, Real Madrid 1957-66
