He ran the white institution for 7 years. At that time he knew how to embody and transmit the values of the entity, which earned him his recognition at the world level.
A brilliant generation of Quarrymen was the protagonist of the years 80. ' La Quinta del Vulture ', led by Emilio Butragueño, turned Real Madrid into one of the best teams in history.
