Former Real Madrid goalkeeper legend Javier Berasaluce has died at the age of 91, the Spanish club said Tuesday.

Berasaluce spent five years at Madrid between 1955 and 1960, during which time he won five European Cups and two La Liga titles, albeit while playing understudy to Juan Alonso.

The Spaniard, who was never capped by his country, also represented Deportivo Alaves and Racing Santander in the Spanish top-flight.

Los Blancos confirmed Berasaluce's passing on their official website on Tuesday.

Alaves also sent their condolences to the family of Berasaluce, who along with his granddaughter took the honorary kick-off against Madrid last January to mark the club's centenary.
