Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez has stated that if Real Madird would go on the stock exchange like Manchester United, they would make more than Manchester United.
The Red Devils floated shares on the New York Stock exchange this July as the Glazers make an attempt to clear off the debt. United have not got on very well as their price remains around $12, lesser than the expected $15-16.
“If we ran into the stock exchange, we would worth more than Manchester United, I can assure that,” he claimed.
He believed that the club’s voting system had been broken down and it needed to be dealt with.
“In 2009 I came back because of a situation that I do not like to remember,” he said. “Here, someone says to vote by show of hands is not democratic. Sorry, but what is more democratic?
“What is not democratic is to sneak electors who are not [worthy]. We must protect the club. We are many.
“Some people are willing to cheat. With a club like Madrid – which boasts an image of fair play – what kind of image do we offer when some members do not participate?
“Voting is direct, free and secret. At what cost? We’ll arbitrate change so Real Madrid covers [the cost]; we’ll put legal representatives in all provinces; and we’ll finish with the ghost of postal voting.”
Perez had replaced Ramon Calderon in 2009.
