Rafael Nadal: "I think I’d like to be Real Madrid president"
Source: AS

With a record 14 French Open titles and 22 Grand Slam men's singles trophies, Rafael Nadal will go down as one of tennis' all-time greats. Yet, the Spaniard is also known for his love for football and especially for Real Madrid.

Recently, the 37-year-old legend had a lenghty interview with Spanish broadcaster Movistar Plus+.

He was also asked about his passion for Real Madrid, whom he has been seen cheering on occasionally while not competing in international competitions, including on Sunday when Los Merengues faced Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabéu.

When asked if he would be interested in becoming the president of the 14-time European champions, Nadal initially seemed to be dismissive of the idea, but as his response continued, it became evident that the concept is one he had given some serious thought to.

"I don’t know. I can assure you that it’s not always been a dream of mine. But if you ask me if I’d like to be Real Madrid president, I think I would. But first of all, we’ve got the best possible president at the moment. On top of that, how I feel today might not be how I feel tomorrow. And then you never know what can happen in life. You have to know if you’re capable of doing that type of thing. I’m quite realistic with myself, I more or less know my limitations. I don’t know if I’d be capable of doing it or not. Anyway, time will tell".
