Video: Raul leads Schalke fans in a song and dance
These outstanding scenes comes from Wednesday night and Schalke completing their demolition of Inter Milan to book their place in the Champions League semi-final.
Hero of the hour Raul was drafted in by the fans to assist with the post-match celebrations. The Spanish star was handed a microphone and encouraged to lead the Schalke faithful in chants, songs and the occasional dance.
Meanwhile, his team-mates took the role of spectators crouching on the pitch as one fan bellows through the microphone: “Sit down, God [Raul] will speak.”
Equally fascinating was that the TV station continued to broadcast the celebrations live. ITV’s advertisers would be having a fit!
Make sure you watch to the end for the commentator’s great sign-off line: “Manchester calling… und dann Wembley calling.”
