Freddy Rincon was one of the brightest players of his generation in Colombia. But passing through the Real Madrid was not very productive. Idol in his country, He was next to Valderrama or Higuita including one of the greatest exponents of a generation that put fear footballing world thrashing 0 a 5 to Argentina at home in 1993. But nevertheless, the three played in the league and did not succeed.

In the summer of 1995, Freddy Rincon arrived in Madrid to play in the rows of white club. Endorsed by Valdano, On arrival it was intended to reinforce a set that had finished champions few months earlier. Before, He had marveled at the shirt of Colombia and played for teams like Napoli or Palmeiras.
But his first problem was that had not yet approved the Bosman law so any player born in Spain, Portuguese abroad was considered out, Danish or Colombian. As a rule saying that only he could summon 4, Rincón had to be ever discarding. With the cessation of Valdano went directly to ostracism. White club signed the veteran and Arsenio Iglesias who was not game the Colombian.
Despite having signed for three years, He came to meet one thanks and left the club in the summer 1996. That season btw, It was the worst in the history of Real Madrid, at least the worst in 40 years is that the white club did not even qualify for the UEFA something that today seems unthinkable. The latest news about him were not very good since spread that the player was wanted by Interpol for issues related to drug dealers and other shady topics. A penalty for a player whose level may give for more.
