Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has said that 2014 was the memorable one for the Los Blancos and next target of the club is to win the record breaking 11th UEFA Champions League title.
2014 was a year to remember for Real Madrid as they won much coveted La Decima under Carlo Ancelotti while they also finished the year on high by winning the Club World Cup in Brazil.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and coaches and captains of their football and Basketball squads came together today to send the greetings of the season to the fans of the club.
Speaking on this occasion, the Real Madrid president said that next target of the club is to win La Undécima in 2015.
“The year 2014 has been marked by two exceptional events. Firstly, the farewell to our honorary president, Alfredo Di Stéfano. His has been a loss of huge significance, because we’re not only talking about the best player this club has ever had, but also one that changed the history of Real Madrid and of football.”
“The last match that our honorary president watched is the other major event of the year: the club’s tenth UEFA Champions League title. For madridistas, it represented the satisfaction of achieving something highly coveted for so many years. But at Real Madrid there is no time to rest on your laurels and everyone is now talking about winning La Undécima, which we are working to do.”
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti also wished Happy Christmas to the Madridistas and said that he wants to carry on the success cycle. “With a great amount of effort and hard work, we achieved something very important. That brings us huge desire ahead of 2015. In 2014, a cycle began that could be important for the future of Real Madrid.”
Carlo Ancelotti also said that he is happy after winning the La Décima but winning the Champions League again would be a great achievement.
“I was happy after winning ‘La Décima’ because it was the product of hard work across the board and it was an extraordinary source of motivation for the Real Madrid community. We made everyone’s dream come true. I would give the team a very high mark because we managed the ultimate achievement. If I had one message for the fans, it’d be to get behind us with all the love that this team deserve.”
