Topics: Argentina international footballers Argentine footballers Argentine physicians


Raul Madero is an Argentine sports physician and former football (soccer) player.

As a teenager, Madero was drawn initially to basketball, but decided on football when it became clear he had the talent to make it in the professional league. He played for Boca Juniors and Huracan but he came into his own with the Estudiantes de La Plata team that won several national and international titles between 1967 and 1970. He was also cited for the Argentina national football team. He scored only nine goals for Estudiantes, but one of these goals was a crucial header against Quilmes that helped Estudiantes avoid relegation.

Madero and fellow player Carlos Bilardo retired after graduating as Medical Doctors. While Bilardo remained in football as a coach, Madero chose to specialize in sports medicine. In the late 1970s, he was team physician at Argentinos Juniors. When Diego Maradona transferred from Argentinos to Boca Juniors, Madero went with him and took part in the successful 1981 championship campaign.
