The situation

The name of Royston Drenthe will always be remembered by Real Madrid fans . The Dutchman landed at the Santiago Bernabéu with the young promise poster , but the result was not what was expected and he left through the back door. Hércules, Everton and Alania Vladikavkaz were his next experiences after his journey through Chamartín. This last one in Russian lands has been recalled by the 35-year-old footballer in an interview for ‘RTV Rijnmond’, a Dutch media outlet. The player landed in Vladikavkaz , a city located in the south of Russia, to defend the colors of the team from this town in the First Division. However, the memory that he holds is not very positive, since he assures that in that locality there was no point of entertainment. “ Vladikavkaz was not the ideal place. It is a totally destroyed city. You couldn’t do anything fun, despite having a lot of money , ”He assures. The current Real Murcia player reiterates that those six months in Russia “have been to forget” as a result of the difficulties he had to adapt to local customs. However, he has good memories of vodka , since he became his best ally during that experience. “ The vodka…. We drank it very often, it was one of the mainstays. In that perspective, it was not difficult to get used to. Also, we had vodka on the team bus. In Russia it is like that”, he points out.

“I spent many nice nights with Guti…”

Also, it is necessary to highlight another anecdote transferred by the footballer, in which he revealed who his faithful party companions were when he was a Real Madrid player. “I have had so many beautiful nights with Guti . We often hung out with Wesley Sneijder, Robinho and Gonzalo Higuain . Wesley and I were flesh and blood and we could cross the red line from time to time. And there were times when Higuaín signed up”.
