Anti-Florentino Perez banners removed from Bernabeu

Some supporters arrived at the Santiago Bernabéu to protest the current Real Madrid president amid a very poor season, but they didn’t stay for long.

Florentino Pérez was the focus attention in the first half of Real Madrid-Celta Vigo game on saturday. Los Blancos president was sent a message via banners in the stands and stewards were then charged with removing them from the crowds in the Santiago Bernabéu.

There were at least two protests in the form of these banners. In one of them it could be read: “Florentino, go now” and in the other, “Florentino, guilty”. They were not up for long, however, as the security staff in the stadium collected them.

A member of the club who witnessed what happened spoke to AS. “They took away banners saying that Florentino was the culprit [for a poor season] and those asking him to resign. Security arrived and threw them out, removing the placards and taking them out of the stadium.”
