“This encourages us to continue our focus on the academy", added the president.
Florentino Pérez was in attendance as Real Madrid clinched the Youth League at the Colovray Stadium in Nyon (Switzerland) and he reflected after the game: “I've had a great time. Everything requires an awful lot of hard work and sacrifice. These young lads have played four games inside nine days and no matter how strong and youthful they might be, that is significant. We're delighted to be here in Nyon lifting our first Youth League”.

“This serves to highlight something we work very hard on, in our academy. It's hugely important to us. We've already seen many players plying their trade around the world, in Spain and of course in our first team. This encourages us to continue our focus on something we strongly believe in and always have, which is our academy”.
