President Florentino Perez was among the record names for Real Madrid, who won the Champions League by beating Liverpool. The legendary president didn’t fail to mention Kylian Mbappe, who refused Real Madrid after the historic victory and preferred to stay at Paris Saint-Germain.
President Florentino Perez made history as well as Carlo Ancelotti, who won the 4th cup at Real Madrid, who won the cup for the 14th time beating Liverpool 1-0 in the UEFA Champions League final, and players who have won their 5th cup.
19 YEARS OF DYNAMICS IN TWO PERIODS: FLORENTINO PEREZ
Florentino Perez, who served as the first term president between 2000 and 2006, started the ‘Los Galacticos’ era at Real Madrid. By transferring stars such as Zidane, Ronaldo and Beckham, he brought them back to the top of Europe. Lifting his first Champions League trophy in 2002, Perez lost the presidency to Ramon Calderon in 2006. Perez’s first term lasted 5 years and 226 days.
Florentino Perez’s second term began on January 16, 2009. Perez, who took charge when Barcelona, under Guardiola, kicked into high gear in the eternal rivalry with the flag passed from Ronaldinho to Messi, has rolled up its sleeves to form a new “Stars Team”.
Perez, who transferred Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Benzema in the 2009 summer transfer window, was also laying the foundations for a side that would go on to mark the Champions League for the next 13 years.
Real Madrid, who struggled to compete with Barcelona getting used to playing together, enjoyed the first Giants League title of Perez’s second term in 2014. Then Real Madrid, who were the biggest Europe three times in a row in 2016, 2017 and 2018, won Cup 1 again after a 4-year break and reached their 14th championship.
SANTIAGO EQUALES CUTS WITH BERNABEU
Florentino Perez, who won the 1st Champions League trophy in his first term at the start of Real Madrid and the 5th Champions League trophy in his second term, reached 6 trophies in total and equaled the number of Champions League trophies with legendary Santiago Bernabeu president. There were 6 cup victories during the Bernabeu period, which served between 1943 and 1978 and gave the stadium its name.
In total trophies won in football, Bernabeu has 33 trophies and Perez has 29 trophies.
AFTER VICTORY, HE GAVE OWNERSHIP CLUBS
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who overthrew Liverpool, made some remarkable statements after the win. Pointing out that they have reduced their expenses due to the construction of the stadium for 3 years, Perez; “State-sponsored clubs have the biggest budgets and the most talented players. Real Madrid doesn’t pay dividends. It’s the biggest fan-owned club in the world. We have values, sacrifices and big fans.” He referred to clubs like PSG, Manchester City and Chelsea.
“I WILL KEEP FIGHTING FOR THE EUROPEAN SUPER LEAGUE”
Perez, 75, also spoke about the European Super League project, which was set up last year with the 12 biggest clubs in Europe and ended with the intervention of UEFA and especially the British government; “I will continue to fight for the European Super League. Just like Santiago Bernabeu fought for the Champions League.” said.
“MBAPPE IS FORGOTTEN FOR US”
Perez answered the question about Kylian Mbappe, who was due to move to Real Madrid for 1 year but signed a new 3-year contract with PSG last week:
Mbappe? He’s not here right now, is he? It’s Real Madrid’s party. Real Madrid are always home to the best players in the world. Mbappe has been forgotten to us. A file from the past. No problem for us.

WHAT DID MBAPPE OF REAL MADRID AND PEREZ SAY AT THE SIGNING CEREMONY?
Kylian Mbappe had answered questions during the PSG signing ceremony if not going to Real Madrid would prevent him from carrying out the new childhood dream of signing the Real Madrid shirt.
I have a lot of respect for Real Madrid. I have the same respect for Florentino Perez. He was very interested in me. So when I made up my mind, I called him personally and thanked him for his interest. We have a close relationship with him. It’s an honor for any player to wear a Real Madrid or PSG jersey. I’ve always dreamed of wearing the Real Madrid jersey. I want to thank Real Madrid fans for always seeing me as one of their own. I hope they understand that I want to stay in my country. Will this decision interfere with my “childhood dream”? I do not know. I did the best seim for me right now. I don’t know what will happen in the future.
