Juan Onieva has withdrawn his candidacy from the Real Madrid presidential elections.

Barely 24 hours after presenting his ticket to the local media, which includes plans to sign Almeria coach Hugo Sanchez, Radio Marca says Onieva has decided to step down. He will make the decision official on Monday.

For the moment, Florentino Perez has a clear run at returning to the Real presidency for next month's ballot.
