In the frame of the ceremony of prizes of 'Tuttosport', the president of the Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez, has been distinguished like the best executive at the head of a club after an election in which they have participated historical figures of the World-wide football, like the winner of the Balloon of Gold, Pavel Nedved, Samuel Eto'or, Andriy Shevchenko, Hristo Stoichkov, Lothar Mathaus, Juan Sebastián Verón, Emilio Butragueño, among others.

In his speech after receiving the award, the jerarca white has not lost the occasion to go out in defence of the project of creation of a Superliga European, warning that the model of the balompié current has to adapt to the new times: "In the last 20 years the world has changed, all has changed in our lives and the football can not not to adapt to this. It is the only universal sport and global, can not allow that other more organised sports and apt to the change take advantage of of this to remove us this privilege".

For Florentino Pérez, the main aim is to attract the attention of the youngest fans carrying them a greater number of parties of high level, leaving backwards the current model: "I Am working to adapt me to the times that live: we do not have to allow that the youngsters move away of the football because we offer split less attractive. We have to reflexionar all together to give them to the youngsters what expect of us".

Likewise, it considers that with this type of efforts, that also has like impulsores to the presidents of the FC Barcelona and the Juventus, Joan Laporta and Andrea Agnelli, respectively, the football will keep his honour like the 'deport king': "we Are working for this and will struggle with all my strengths so that the football do not lose his position of privilege and keep on being the sport king in all the continents".

Change of name of the Bernabéu?

Although Florentino Pérez has had an important contribution to the history of the Real Madrid with his work from the dispatches, sustains that the name of the feudo merengue has to keep: "Never it will carry my name. It will call Bernabéu for ever. It was he the one who created all this, we only continue his work. It wanted in 1947 this stadium, a very ambitious project, went the first in carrying the team to America when it seemed a madness... All what are, are due to it to him he. Besides, the name of our stadium already is one 'mark'. The youngsters, perhaps, do not know who was Bernabéu, but say 'see us in the Bernabéu'. If they want to, they will be able to give him my name to the sportive city. But the stadium will be for ever Santiago Bernabéu".
