Club career

In 1981, Butragueño joined Real Madrid's youth system, and played first for its reserve side, before being given his senior debut by Alfredo di Stéfano on 5 February 1984 against Cádiz CF. He made an instant impact, scoring twice and assisting for the third goal in a 3–2 away turnaround, as Real had trailed by 0–2. On 12 December that year, he made his European competition debut, contributing to a 6–1 home triumph against R.S.C. Anderlecht (after a 0–3 loss in Brussels).

At the time, Real Madrid's form was so patchy that first team's attendances were poorer than the reserve side ones.[1] Butragueño contributed to the side's transformation, and was a prominent member of the team during the 1980s, winning numerous honours: he received the European Bronze award for best footballer in two consecutive years, and won the Pichichi in 1991, while also being instrumental in the capital club's five national leagues, two domestic cups and two (consecutive) UEFA Cups.

In June 1995, having lost his influence in the Real Madrid side (only eight matches, with one goal, as the club won another league), mainly due to the emergence of 17-year old Raúl González, Butragueño signed for Club Celaya in Mexico and, in his first year, the team reached the final of the championship. After three years, where he was known as the Gentleman of the Pitch (never received a single red card during his entire career), he finally decided to retire from the game in April 1998.

International career

Butragueño played 69 international matches for Spain, and scored 26 goals. His debut came on 17 October 1984, against Wales in a 1986 World Cup qualifier, although he had already been picked as an uncapped player for the UEFA Euro 1984 team, as the nation finished runners-up.

Butragueño was also selected for the 1986 FIFA World Cup, where he played a major part, scoring four goals as Spain beat Denmark 5–1 in the round of 16 match. He also played in Italia '90, and was the national side's fifth-highest all-time top scorer with 26 goals, behind Raúl (44), David Villa (31), Fernando Hierro (29) and Fernando Morientes (27).
