Carlos Valderrama remembers the famous incident when Míchel grabbed his crotch during a the Week 2 meeting between Real Madrid and Valladolid at the Bernabéu in September 1991 in a promotional video as part of a campaign to prevent testicular cancer.
"Thank you Michel for touching my balls"
“I’ve been through a lot of important moments in my career. But there was one in particular which really left a mark on me. I can still feel it. First, touching my left testicle – from top to bottom with his fingertips. And then the right one, repeating the same movement. And then a third time, to see if both testicles had the same shape. Trying to find a possible lump. It didn’t hurt but I got a little… pissed off. If I had felt pain, I would have had to call my doctor. Because this is how you can detect a possible testicular cancer. For this my dear friend, I want to say thank you for touching my balls. Like we all should do to prevent testicular cancer. Thank you Michel!"
