Florentino Perez sends a message to Mbappe after winning the Spanish Super Cup with Real Madrid against Barcelona
Real Madrid crowned Super hero Spain in 2024 after defeating Barcelona 4-1 in the final held at Al Awal Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Florentino Pérez, who became the president with the most titles (in football) in Real Madrid's history with 33 titles, surpassing the Santiago Bernabéu's 32, spoke with 'Movistar' about the emotions of the match.
Fans in Saudi Arabia
“I'm happy that the fans are happy to see a good match. There are many Real Madrid fans here in Arabia, as we saw, who had one of the happiest nights. Lots of goals? In these two tournaments, it's normal for things like this to happen.
“We played both games very well, we scored goals, people had fun and we told the fans here that we have a great team and that, every year, we will work hard to give hope to the team.” “Hundreds of fans. Millions of fans,” he said.
Praise for Vinicius
“He almost always shines, he deserves it and he is very happy. The effort he puts in every game is exceptional, that's why he is one of the best players in the world. He is very young, he is happy and he is very good, and every year, he will improve.”
The message to Mbappe
“Mbappe? Really, this is not the day to talk about this. It's the day to congratulate the players we have, not those other teams.”
“In fact, he is a coach who fits Real Madrid's style very well, both for his way of understanding football and for his exemplary behavior in every match. Real Madrid and Ancelotti fit together very well.”
Relationship with Laporta
“It is very good, we have a very good institutional relationship, and I know the effort they are making. Today he is as sad as I am happy.”
“It's not the right day to talk about referees either. I'm worried about everything surrounding football, but today, I'm only worried about the enthusiasm of the fans,” Florentino Pérez concluded.
