The presidential candidate of Real Madrid withdraws from the presidential elections of the club merengue.
Florentino Perez will face no competition for a sixth term as president of Real Madrid following the retirement of Enrique Riquelme.
Riquelme was the only club member considering running against the current president, but he cited the election schedule as an obstacle to running a campaign.
“The unfair conduct of the elections, which historically take place in summer, and the dates on which they must be held have prevented me from presenting my candidacy and launching a campaign that connects the members and allows me to explain my project for Real Madrid ”, we read in Riquelme’s statement.
“I will continue to work on the best possible offer for a Real Madrid 3.0.” As a result, Florentino Perez will be sworn in as Real Madrid president for the sixth time when his next term begins on Tuesday, unless further presidential candidacies are made before that date.
Riquelme, the businessman who was looking to succeed Florentino Perez as President of Real, did not want Zinedine Zidane as a coach as a recall.
He felt that the club’s sporting staff should look for a different coaching style and mentioned Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp as a candidate he would like.
“Zidane would not be my trainer,” he told COPE and Radio MARCA.
“Sports management would look at another profile with a different strategy.
“Personally, I like Klopp a lot and Raul is doing very well. It would be evaluated.”
Since this declaration, Zidane has signed two masterclasses, against Liverpool in C1 and Barça in La Liga.
