Perez: Madrid will bounce back

Florentino Perez has vowed that Real Madrid will bounce back from their Champions League elimination at the hands of Juventus on Wednesday.

Los Blancos exited Europe’s elite club competition at the semi-final stage after they were defeated 3-2 on aggregate by the Old Lady, but the President was hopeful about the future, reserving special praise for his side’s supporters.

“It’s not a happy day for Real Madrid. Our fans are sad, but this [elimination] will make us stronger and work harder,” he said at a promotional event on Thursday.

“Nothing is ever enough [at Madrid]. We want more and we’ll keep fighting to win La Undecima [an 11th Champions League].

“I want to thank Real Madrid’s fans for their support, both [on Wednesday] and forever. The members and fans make this club legendary.”
