"You're part of this badge and will remain forever in the hearts of all madridistas around the world", said president Florentino Pérez.
Francisco Gento López, "Paco Gento", was unanimously appointed Honorary President of Real Madrid at the Extraordinary General Assembly held in the basketball arena at Real Madrid City and received a warm ovation from the members.

Before the screening of an emotional video with images of the honouree, Florentino Pérez spoke: "The Board brings to this Extraordinary Assembly the name of whom we believe should pick up the baton from Alfredo Di Stefano. I put forward with great emotion and affection Francisco Gento López as Honorary President of Real Madrid. The only player in the history of football to have won 6 European Cups. He also has 12 leagues titles, 2 Spanish Cups, 1 Intercontinental Cup, 2 Latin Cups and 1 Small World Cup, 601 official matches with Real Madrid, 182 goals scored and 44 games for the Spanish national team".

You represent the values of Real Madrid.

"I speak to you of a great man and a great player who joined Real Madrid in 1953 from Racing Santander. He was then 19 years old and was here with us as a player for 18 seasons. Dear Paco Gento, beyond this record, you represent the values of Real Madrid, you are part of this badge and will remain forever in the hearts of all madridistas around the world. I know our great Alfredo Di Stéfano would be proud that you are his replacement as head of the presidency".

Emotional memory of Alfredo Di Stéfano
"As honorary president of Real Madrid he made the name of our club even bigger and his farewell still reminds us of a huge gap amongst us", said Florentino Pérez, initiating a round of applause from the members present.
