Real Madrid’s ties with Bolivia were reinforced on Friday when club president Florentino Perez held a meeting with president Evo Morales.
As part of his tour of Spain, Morales attended a breakfast discussion with Perez, the Bolivian chancellor Fernando Huanacuni, the vice-chancellor Carmen Almonds, and the ambassador of the Andean country in Madrid, Ramiro Tapia.
Their last meeting in 2013 saw the Bolivian leader travel to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, with it known that he is a big football fan. That day, he met figures such as Alfredo Di Stefano and Zinedine Zidane.
The Real Madrid Foundation has ten football schools located across Bolivia. The five located in the Cochabamba region were inaugurated last June in a ceremony attended by Morales and Los Blancos’ director of institutional relations, former player Emilio Butragueno.
