Florentino Perez has been travelling around the world, conceding interviews again. He is flaunting the tenth Champions League like a hunting trophy. Personal trophy, which customizes to his own model. The confirmation that everything was done right. It doesn't matter if his mandate began in 2009 and it took five years to get it (what Laporta or Rosell did with the half the time or less).
Spanish newspapers have been dedicating their front pages to the Spanish national team for days
Now it turns out that the World Cup appears in the middle of the big campaing of advertisement and "evangelism". And the Spanish newspapers have been dedicating their front pages to the Spanish national team for days.
For Florentino Pérez, the World Cup arrived in the worst moment. It breaks all the uproar generated. And attention! If Spain wins the competition, the effect will last until the beggining of La Liga. So, the summer in which the tenth Champions League should be flaunted, would be used to flaunt "La Roja".
The truth is that the previous 3 European Cups were also won in years of national teams' competitions. The seventh coincided with the France World Cup (98). The Eighth, with the Belgium and Netherlands Eurocup. And the Ninth, with the Korea and Japan World Cup. But then the story was different. The Spanish only eclipsed the successes of Madrid during the days of World Cup. And the World Cup then lasted little for them.
We will see the concept "current European champions" everywhere
So the Madrid-Spain cohabitation as current champions, though from different competitions, becomes detrimental to Madrid. Some Whites, it is true, have come to deny his national team for its resemblance in play (and players) with Barça. And the disruption of the media campaign is a great inconvenient for Florentino. But he doesn't need to suffer. He will receive compensation next season. We will see the concept of "current European champions" everywhere.
