Real Madrid president Florentino Perez marks 900 games in charge

Victory over Celta Vigo marked Real Madrid president Florentino Perez's 900th game in charge.

In two spells at the helm of the Spanish giants, Perez has amassed 900 fixtures in all competitions.

Of these matches, 584 have come in LaLiga Santander, 95 in the Copa del Rey and 12 in the Supercopa de Espana.

Of the continental fixtures, eight have been in the Club World Cup, two in the Intercontinental Cup, six in the UEFA Super Cup and a grand total of 192 in the Champions League.

Perez first took charge of the club's affairs on July of 2000, winning an election following the Champions League triumph under Lorenzo Sanz's stewardship.
