In a poll held by FIFA in 2000, Real Madrid was elected as the best club of the 20th century and for many good reasons. No other club has ever won the European Cup 5 consecutive times like Real Madrid did in the late 1950s with some legendary squads. Looking at the current squad of the club featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema, Luka Modrić and Sergio Ramos one gets the feeling that the club is high geared towards reproducing that remarkable achievement. Real Madrid’s history is paved with a long tradition of trophy wins. With 11 European cups (4 of them during the Champions League era), 2 UEFA cups, 3 European Super Cups, 3 intercontinental cups, 33 national championships and 19 Copa Del Rey national cups, Real Madrid is one of the most decorated clubs in the history of football.
