“I know [Zidane] and it’s been a hard year,”

he said.

“I fought for him to stay. I haven’t read the farewell letter but I swear by my grandchildren that the one who wrote that letter wasn’t Zidane. But I wish him well; he’s been a legend for Real Madrid and has the respect of all of us. His dream is to be the coach of France and he’ll surely achieve it.”

One of the most important things that Perez has talked about is Super League, in which he had a big role and still insists that the new tournament is essential for the football world.

“Football is losing interest, it has no attractions,”

he said

. “TV ratings are falling and that’s the problem. We want to satisfy everybody, and that’s why there’s less appeal. This Super League is made up of the clubs with the most followers in the world; if there is no money, football is going to die.”

And about Mbappe, he insisted that although he is a great player, no one should talk about other clubs’ players.

“I know what the Real Madrid socios want,”

he said

. “They know what my policy is, mixing the best with the young. But I don’t want to talk about a player who isn’t ours; the people who know me trust me, and Mbappe is a great player.”

Real Madrid president has also talked about Sergio Ramos’ departure, which has made many supporters upset and claimed that although he loved the high-profile defender, he didn’t respond to the club’s offer, so they didn’t have a choice but to let him go.

“I love Ramos like a son,”

Florentino said

. “I’ve never been to a press conference with a player. I brought him [to the club] in 2005, and I have adoration for him. He’s been a legend and we’ve always maintained that. We offered him a contract, it had a deadline, and he didn’t abide by it. This is his home, and he’ll for sure return in another position.”
