Calderon quits as Real chief


Recommended Posts

all news have opened with that today :o


Ramon Calderon has resigned as president of Spanish champions Real Madrid after an emergency board meeting at the Bernabeu.








Calderon, who was elected to the post in 2006, confirmed earlier reports of his resignation in a press conference at the Bernabeu.

"Against the recommendations of my board I have decided to step down from the presidency," Calderon said.

"I have committed errors but not irregularities. I go with my head held high."

The 57-year-old lawyer will be replaced by Vicente Boluda, who takes charge until a new presidential election can be held in the close season.

Calderon, who has held the post since 2006, has been under pressure to go since Marca newspaper published allegations earlier this week of irregularities at the club's general assembly last month.

The allegations said unauthorised persons had gained access to the club's assembly on December 7 and their presence had helped swing votes on key issues in favour of the management.

At a news conference on Wednesday, Calderon said two Real officials involved in organising the assembly had resigned and he would probably not stand for re-election when his four-year mandate ended in 2010.

He ruled out stepping down immediately and insisted neither he nor any other member of the management board were involved in any irregularities.


This is due to a "trick" that sports press here "Marca" revealed about not supporters voting on some recent assambly of this team, all the votes were to support Calderón's candidature :thinking:
