Perez’s reign so far
The civil engineer first took power in Madrid in 2000, replacing Lorenzo Sanz, and headed the club for six years.
In his first season, Los Blancos increased his mark internationally, but Perez left in 2006 and resigned after being criticized for not being focused enough on the team’s success.
He was replaced by Ramon Calderon, who resigned in 2009 amid allegations of a vote, and Perez returned unopposed to replace Vicente Boluda’s stop-gap option in mid-2009.
Since then, Madrid have achieved almost unparalleled success across the continent, bringing in players like Cristiano Ronaldo.
It looks like he will face the challenges of Boluda and Enrique Riquelme in his fourth consecutive term this year, but both seem to have cooled interest in recent weeks.
