Real Madrid President Florentino Perez built a team that went down in football history. After Saturday's victory by the "Los Blancos" at Wembley, the 77-year-old spoke sincerely about his team.

Florentino Perez is a prominent figure in world football. He first led Real Madrid from 2000 to 2006, during which the famous "Galacticos" team was formed. He has been leading the club continuously since 2009.

It's speculated that these may be Perez's final years at the club, as he will be 78 in 2025 when the next elections occur. However, Florentino isn't thinking about the future; he is focused on leading the team to further success.

On Saturday, in the Champions League final at Wembley, Real Madrid defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0. For the Royal Whites, it was their 15th triumph in the prestigious competition.

It's an amazing night because, as I always say, these are the competitions we like the most. Santiago Bernabeu created them, and they have made us important in the world. Every time we win them, immense happiness is generated among the players, the president, and all the fans around the world - said Perez, quoted by

During a conversation with journalists, the Real Madrid president also had to answer questions about Kylian Mbappe's future. The Frenchman is leaving PSG and is expected to become the new player of Los Blancos.

You can ask me as many times as you want. I don't talk about players who are not in the Real Madrid squad. Especially now, when we won the title, and not so long ago, another one. This is a team that deserves all the praise. The future? We will see what lies ahead - added Perez.
