Although, without a doubt, the president who has most marked the history of the white club was Santiago Bernabeu, a whole model for the current president, Florentino Pérez.

If Bernabéu changed the history of Real Madrid in the presidency, on the pitch it did Alfredo Di Stéfano that made the white team a champion and dominating team both in Europe, with five European Cups in a row, and in Spain.
