I would like to be the president of Real Madrid someday: Rafael Nadal

New Delhi: Spanish tennis legend Rafael Nadal, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest tennis players ever, is also a huge football fan. Rafa, who recently suffered a heartbreaking loss to old nemesis Roger Federer in Australian Open final, has revealed that he plans to be the president of Real Madrid someday.

The 14-time Grand Slam champion also said that the club won’t need him as they already have a great president in Florentino Perez.

‘Of course I’d like to be Real Madrid president,’ Nadal told Marca. ‘You never know what’ll happen in the future.

‘Anyhow, we have a great president now and I don’t think Real Madrid will need me.’

Real Madrid currently top the La Liga table after an excellent start to Zinedine Zidane’s first full campaign in charge of the club.

They are a point clear of rivals Barcelona, who reached the Copa del Rey final on Tuesday, and have two games in-hand.
