Celebration Part II: Presenting The Trophy At City Hall

14 May

Next stop, City Hall where they were greeted by Mayor Ana Botella and they did a whole lot of meetin’ and greetin’.

From RealMadrid.com

At City Hall, which is located at Cibeles square, the team was received by Mayor Ana Botella, who said: “We are proud of you. This league has been like a long distance race and winning it was a task for true champs like yourselves. Thank you for being such magnificent ambassadors of Madrid. You deserve more than a 10 out of 10; you deserve a mark of 100, just like the record number of points you took this season.”

The Mayor gave Florentino Perez, the players and the coaching staff a memento of the occasion, while surprisingly handing captain Casillas a traditional Madrid cap, as befits during the current celebrations of the city’s patron, Saint Isidro. Perez presented the Mayor with a replica of the trophy, a shirt signed by the entire squad and another personalised team shirt with the number 32 on its back.

“This league belongs to you as much as it belongs to us,” said the Real Madrid President as he addressed the fans gathered at City Hall, “This team has earned a special place in the memories of all Madridistas with this feat. We work seriously and hard to enlarge the greatness of our legend.”

“We want and hope to return next year,” added Casillas and Ramos. Granero also grabbed the microphone and expressed how “proud the team is of the citizens of Madrid” and Marcelo said they were all “incredibly happy with our wonderful supporters.”

    It’s interesting to note that while everyone holds the trophy with one hand, Sergio has to have both his hands on it. Guess he’s not trusting himself yet either!

    And you KNOW he is eyeing that hat that Iker got. I could just hear him whispering “Ey Iker, I need to borrow that hat this weekend. I have a west-cot and riding boots that match it perfectly”.
