Florentino Perez has been re-elected unopposed as president of Real Madrid for a sixth term, the Spanish champions announced on Tuesday.
The 74-year-old was the only name in the running since the window for potential candidates to apply opened at the start of the month.
A club statement said: “A single candidate was validated by the electoral committee….and D. Florentino Perez Rodriguez is proclaimed president.”
Perez, the head of major construction group ACS, has already twice been re-elected unopposed, in 2013 and 2017.
He was the man behind Madrid’s star-studded “Galacticos” era in his first spell in charge of the club between 2000-2006.
His latest mandate will see him at the helm until 2025.
Since July 2000, under the presidency of Perez, Madrid have won five Champions Leagues, five Club World Cups, four European Super Cups, five La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey titles and five Spanish Super Cups.
Meanwhile Real have also confirmed that captain Sergio Ramos, who was already out of this week’s Champions League meeting with Liverpool because of a calf injury, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Real face Liverpool in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at Anfield on Wednesday, leading 3-1 from the first leg as they go in search of a 14th European crown.
Ramos is the second case of coronavirus detected in the Real Madrid squad in a week. French defender Raphael Varane tested positive last Tuesday.
Varane has not yet been given the green light to rejoin his teammates.
Ramos injured his left calf while with Spain during the international window but he has been a vocal presence on the sidelines since.
