NEWS | 04/06/2016 | Antonio M. Leal (Casablanca) | PHOTOGRAPHER: Antonio VillalbaMore than 300 madridista fans attended the event in Casablanca.
During the event which was attended by supporters from Casablanca, Marrakech, Tetuán and Tangier, there was a minute's silence in honour of the victims of the attack on the madridista supporters club in Iraq. The guests enjoyed the broadcast of an emotional video of the final in Milan and another with an updated version of the song created for la Décima.
Florentino Pérez then addressed those in attendance to thank them for their constant support: “Real Madrid has always and will always hold Morocco in its heart because we know very well the great affection we receive from its people. That's why I'm here today. And also because I want to share the triumph of our eleventh European Cup with you all. La Undécima belongs to you and to all the madridistas who, like you, feel the emotion of Real Madrid from all over the world”.
“Because Real Madrid is a universal feeling. You all form part of this club, regardless of nationality, language, religion or social class. Real Madrid is all-encompassing, it's for everyone. We are a club that, as you all know, never gives up. A club who gives their all, shows sacrifice until the last minute, and that's how we've managed to build football's greatest legacy over the course of our history”.
“Each time we come to this fellow nation, we feel as if we were at home. Here in Morocco, we won the Club World Cup just a year and a half ago, and we played like we were in the Santiago Bernabéu. I want to thank you for your welcome, for your passion for Real Madrid and for your loyalty to this badge”.
At the end of the meeting, also attended by chairmen of the Board of Directors, Ángel Luis Heras and Nicolás Martín-Sanz and the Social Area director, José Luis Sánchez, Florentino Pérez posed for photos with the fans and signed autographs.
