Vicente Boluda announces he'll challenge for Real Madrid presidency

Vicente Boluda has declared he intends to challenge for the Real Madrid presidency in 2021.

Boluda briefly served in the post as an interim in 2009 after the resignation of Ramón Calderón, before Florentino Pérez took the reins for a second stint after stepping down himself in 2006.

"Real Madrid have a president who is doing really well," Boluda said at a business event in Valencia on Monday, as reported by Spanish radio network Cadena SER.

"It's another thing that, next year, there will be new elections and I want there to be elections, and for that there have to be two candidates and one has to be different to the one that's there. I will present myself as a candidate."
