DID YOU KNOW ?

Albiol's father Miguel was a famous player for modest Benidorm CD.

Whilst his father still had contacts at Benidorm, the son joined the side's under-9 and in a friendly match against Valencia CF he played impressively, signing on trial with the Spanish first division side.

Albiol's older brother, Miguel, is also a professional footballer. Both were groomed at local giants Valencia.

In August 2004 Raúl Albiol was involved in a serious car accident and ended up in intensive care. He managed to recover completely.
