My agent had given me a heads-up that Emilio Butragueno would be phoning, so I took my mobile phone everywhere with me. And – how’s your luck- he rang me while I was sitting on the toilet. He said: ‘Look Roy, we’ll be glad to have you.’ The club’s board just had to sanction the deal. I should have appreciated Real’s offer more. It was the most attractive challenge in front of me but I didn’t accept it. I took a negative approach. As much as anything else, it was fear that decided me – fear of the unknown.
