Real Madrid’s candidate, Enrique Riquelme, has made it clear that he intends to oust Zinedine Zidane, the royal coach, if he succeeds in the upcoming elections.
The electoral process began in the halls of Real Madrid with the submission of candidacy papers from last Saturday until next Monday.
Riquelme said in statements to Radio Marca: “Zidane would not be my coach if I took over the presidency of Real Madrid. The sports administration is thinking of another strategy.”
“Personally, I like Jurgen Klopp, and Raul Gonzalez will do very well,” he added.
On his position on the potential deals, he commented, “The sporting director I intend to appoint spoke with Mino Raiola, Erling Halland’s agent, on Wednesday.”
“We asked about Haaland’s situation and Raiola told us what we wanted to know,” the Spanish businessman added.
“Borussia Dortmund wants to keep Haaland for another season before getting a good amount of money when he is sold,” he added.
He concluded, “Raiola did not ask us for 20 million for him and another 20 million for Haaland’s father, as was rumored.”
Enrique Riquelme will compete with Florentino Perez, the current president of Real Madrid, for the Merengue presidency in the elections to be held next June.
Peres arrived in the post in 2009 and has served 3 terms in a row.
