Real Madrid icon Raul is confident that the Santiago Bernabeu side will enjoy a successful 2013-14 campaign following the arrival of a number of promising youngsters.
The Liga giants secured the services of players such as Isco, Asier Illarramendi, Casemiro and Dani Carvajal this summer and the club's record scorer has little doubt that they will be challenging for top honours this term.
"I’m confident that it’s going to be a successful year for Madrid," Raul was quoted as saying on the club's official website.
"I think the club has signed some really great young players this year, players with that hunger to win big things.
"Also, I think there are really important people in the dressing room with these values rooted in the club who know how to transmit that. And there are also other people in the club that deliver that message.
"I’d tell the new recruits to enjoy it as much as possible because it all goes by so quickly. This is a club that knows how to transmit its values and these young players that have joined the club will grasp what this club means."
Madrid recorded a 2-1 won over Betis at the weekend to kick off their 2013-14 campaign.
