Era of Galacticos from 2000
As you may know, Florentino became the president of Real Madrid back in 2000. In August, he promised to sign Luis Figo at any cost. It was visible that Perez was the favorite of the management board, so he easily became the president of the club. At the same time, Florentino signed many big players and that period of Los Blancos is known as “Galacticos”. Florentino signed big players like Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo Nazario, David Beckham and Luis Figo. Along with Roberto Carlos, Makelele, Casilass and Raul, Real Madrid became Galácticos. In the second year of presidency, Real Madrid won the Champions League, first under the president Florentino Perez. Unfortunately, there was a big downhill after the Champions League title.
Second term of Florentino Perez
In 2009, Florentino became the president of Real Madrid again after three years of absence. Florentino promised to sign big names again and he did everything. In the summer of 2009, Real Madrid signed big names like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Ozil, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso. At the same time, the Real Madrid president signed another big player – Gareth Bale. In the second term, Los Blancos won many trophies including four Champions League in five years (three consecutive CL titles). Zidane was the most successful coach for Florentino Perez. At the same time, Cristiano Ronaldo became the biggest goal-scorer of the club under Perez. Perez promised to finish the Stadium’s reconstruction before the end of the spell. Work on Bernabeu started back in March 2020. It’s still in progress and will be ready for the next season. Perez wants to end his final spell of presidency with big transfers.
