Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has called for new club elections to be held, the La Liga giants announced on Thursday.

The 74-year-old has been in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu since 2009 and was also president from 2000-2006, when he was best known for ushering in the ‘Galacticos’ era.

Perez was last reelected in 2017, when he was unopposed.

His detractors criticise a reform in the club’s statutes from 2012, which makes it harder to run for president.
