Real Madrid president Florentino: Ronaldo now Di Stefano's heir

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has declared Cristiano Ronaldo as Alfredo di Stefano's heir.

Ronaldo was one of Pérez's first signings upon his return for a second spell as president in 2009.

"He is the great heir of Di Stéfano and reflects the values of Madrid," Perez told Gazzetta dello Sport of Ronaldo.

"He is our all-time top scorer and represents everything we are: talent, work, sacrifice, professionalism and ambition.

"Today, Cristiano is the symbol of Madrid."
