Real Madrid C. F. wishes to convey its condolences to the family and friends of our legendary pitch delegate, as well as the whole city of Mazarrón, where Herrerín was a driving force behind the opening of a Real Madrid Foundation football school for the integration of children at risk from social exclusion.
Herrerín was connected to Real Madrid for over 50 years, having been involved with all of the club's youth teams, Castilla and latterly as Real Madrid's pitch delegate.
His professional career made him a role model of the values of our club, to which he devoted his whole life.
Considered with great respect within Real Madrid, he has always enjoyed the affection and recognition of all of our club's presidents and boards of directors, as well as the players and madridismo as a whole.
On 20 October, he received a tribute from Real Madrid which saw him presented with a replica model of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium and receive a standing ovation from the Santiago Bernabéu faithful.
