The legendary defender, who was part of Real Madrid's European Cup-winning team in 1966, passed away in the Spanish capital on Saturday.
Born in Alberique, near Valencia, he spent four years at Condal, Barcelona's 'B' team at the time, before playing for Valladolid for three seasons. He then signed for Real Madrid.

He was part of the Real Madrid side dubbed the 'ye-ye' team, a nickname inspired by the chorus of the Beatles song 'She Loves You', after posing for this photopraph in wigs imitating the group's iconic hairstyle.
