"Real Madrid is a way of life. It has values and sometimes unpleasantness”, said the club president.

Florentino Pérez spoke to the press after the final in Paris. The Real Madrid president expressed his delight at the club clinching the Decimocuarta: “We’ve got very good players, they all deserve credit. I’m delighted, just like all the fans will be. We’ve fought and worked hard all season to get here. It’s been a good season in general. Won deservedly won LaLiga and we celebrated together. This is all down to the players, the manager and the fans”.
Courtois has had a spectacular season, he’s a true madridista and, for me, the best goalkeeper in the world and that’s why we brought him here. Real Madrid is a way of life. It has values and sometimes unpleasantness, but this communion between players and fans is important".
“He's a good leader and has very good knowledge of the players’ psychology, Real Madrid and football. He’s right when he says that he believes that the biggest difference between Real Madrid and other clubs is that as well as being good professionals, the players are true madridistas.”

“Madrid will continue working towards having the very best players here but Mbappé is already in the past, it’s not an issue. Madrid have had a perfect season”.

“Yes, they have the biggest budgets and that’s why they have the best players, hence these knock-out rounds being so highly appreciated by everybody. But here at Madrid we don’t share dividends, but rather a way of understanding football, our values, commitment, sacrifice, fighting spirit, a union with the fans… Values we have inherited from Don Santiago Bernabéu, and I can really say I’ve always tried to rise to the challenge of the path he began to forge”.
