Butragueño: "Thank you very much for your support and commitment"
Emilio Butragueño, director of Institutional Relations of the club, oversaw the event and said: "We are proud to be part of this great club with 115 years of history. 60 years have passed and we remember it as if it were yesterday: 1957 is engraved with bright gold. Real Madrid won their second European Cup by defeating Fiorentina in a final in which the second goal was scored by a legend at Real Madrid, our honorary president, Paco Gento".
"A decade later, in 1967, Real Madrid regained its dominance in Spain. The 12th league was won and the basketball section continued making history by winning their third European Cup in four years. 25 years ago, in 1992, our basketball team won their second Cup Winners' Cup with a basket in the last second by Ricky Brown. That year also brings to mind one of the great legends: Juanito who left us. Today we pay homage to you, 60, 50 and 25 years of passion for Real Madrid".
