Celebration Part I: Presenting The Trophy To The Government of Madrid

14 May

Lots of pictures and video to share! Los Blancos made three stops to present the trophy today. First up, was a visit to the Community of Madrid and it’s president Esperanza Aguirre.

From Real Madrid.com

The team and club delegation arrived at the Government of Madrid headquarters at 10:00 in the morning, where dozens of fans were already waiting for them. They were received by President Esperanza Aguirre, who upon receiving the league trophy presented Real Madrid Premier Florentino Perez with a commemorative plaque. Perez in turn gave her a replica of the trophy and a personalised team shirt with the number 32.

“Thank you for receiving us,” said captain Iker Casillas, “It is always important to us to be here every year. We have reasons to be happy and to believe we will offer more titles here in the future.”

“We’re here again, just like we promised last year,” added Florentino Perez, “Ours is a universal club, but this is our home and one of the reasons why we want to win more titles. We’ve won this one in our 110th anniversary.” President Aguirre pointed out “this is a day of immense joy for every citizen of Madrid. I’m happy to have you share a title with us again this year. Congratulations for your spectacular season.”

Before departing to City Hall, the squad stood in a balcony to show the trophy to the fans. “Thank you for everything,” clamoured Casillas, “This trophy belongs to you Madridistas and citizens of Madrid.” Ramos thanked everyone for their “support throughout the year and for being here today,” while Higuain also thanked the supporters for “enjoying a title that was so hard to win.”

What is going on with Pepe & Mesut in the background? LOL!

    Looks like Marcelo is warning Sergio to be careful with the trophy when they have it on the balcony

    I love how in every picture where Ramos is holding the trophy, someone else has a hand on it as well, as an apparent precaution. Poor Ramos. No one trusts him with the shiny new trophy.

    Marcelo was right in holding one handle of the trophy while Sergio holds the other. At least, if anything happens, they’re both to blame. HAHAHA

    (P.S. RvN announced his retirement from football. I wish him all the best and hope to see him soon in the RM veterans team)
