Madrid (AFP) –
Florentino Perez has been re-elected unopposed as president of Real Madrid for a sixth term, the Spanish champions announced on Tuesday.
The 74-year-old was the only name in the running since the window for potential candidates to apply opened at the start of the month.
A club statement said: "A single candidate was validated by the electoral committee....and D. Florentino Perez Rodriguez is proclaimed president".
Perez, the head of major construction group ACS, has already twice been re-elected unopposed, in 2013 and 2017.
He was the man behind Madrid's star-studded 'Galacticos' era in his first spell in charge of the club between 2000-2006.
His latest mandate will see him at the helm until 2025.
Real Madrid face Liverpool in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at Anfield on Wednesday, leading 3-1 from the first leg as they go in search of a 14th European crown.
