»These Football Times« beleuchtet das Verhältnis von Real Madrid zur spanischen Franco-Diktatur in »THE STORY OF REAL MADRID AND THE FRANCO REGIME«:

»The myth of the connection between Real Madrid and the Franco regime is without doubt exaggerated. That’s not to say there’s no truth in it – Franco did to some extent align himself with the club – but it would be a huge step to suggest that their success is in some way owed to this connection.«
