Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has being re-elected unopposed in his position for a further four years. He has now secured a fifth consecutive term and sixth overall at the helm of Madrid. The 74-year-old has been with the La Liga giants in two spells. With his first stint running from 2000 through to 2006, he has spent a total of 18 years at the helm of Los Blancos.

On the club’s official website, Real Madrid said, “On 13 April 2021, in Madrid, at 00:01 hours, at the headquarters of the Real Madrid Club de Futbol Electoral Board, the individuals listed at the beginning meet to discuss and decide on the matters listed below.”

“Given the existing health situation resulting from Covid-19, the president, Mr. Jose Manuel de Carlos Grau, has decided that the members of the Electoral Board who so wish may participate telematically.”

“Having presented no more than one candidacy declared by this Electoral Board and by virtue of article 40, section E, point 2 of the current by-laws of the club, Mr. Florentino Perez Rodriguez is declared president of Real Madrid.”

Perez is famously known for his ‘Galacticos’ approach in the transfer market. Some of the biggest names in the planet were signed by Madrid under his reign.

In his first stint, he acquired mouth-watering deals for Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, David Beckham and Fabio Cannavaro.

The same happened again in the summer of 2009, with Real signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso.

Under his reign, Madrid notably won their 10th Champions League crown in 2014. In total, they have won five Champions League titles and five La Liga crowns under Perez.
