Real Madrid chief Butragueno: Florentino arrival turning point for club

Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno has paid tribute to president Florentino Perez.

Butragueno says Florentino transformed the club upon his arrival.

He declared: “The arrival of Florentino in Madrid was a turning point in club.

"He is a businessman with a lot of experience and has added his grain of sand so that the club continues to grow."

Of his own career, the former striker said: “I was very lucky to play in Madrid. I never thought I would get to wear these colors for the first team. Soccer is fun.

"Life is an illusion with sensations and we must know that we are lucky and that we have to have maximum motivation. They taught me that you have to give 100% always. If you don't feel comfortable, you won't be happy."
