Fire Robert Mueller? Why That Trump Doomsday Scenario Won't Work

"As no other candidature was put forward to the board ... it is proclaimed that Mr Florentino Pérez Rodríguez is president of Real Madrid", the club said in a statement.

The electoral board also ratified that Fernando Fernandez Tapias, Eduardo Fernandez de Blas and Pedro Lopez Jimenez will continue as Perez's vice presidents.
