Cristiano Ronaldo & Co Meet Shimon Peres Ahead Of Deportivo vs Real Madrid

February 25, 2011 By Angela Asante
Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid have welcomed yet another illustrious person ahead of this weekend’s Deportivo vs Real Madrid match. This time, they’ve met with Israeli president Shimon Peres.
Shimon Peres has good links with Florentino Perez’s Real Madrid. Last season, the Israeli president’s Peres Centre For Peace organized a match between Los Blancos and an Israelo-Palestian team at the Ramat Gan stadium.

On Thursday this week, Shimon Peres enjoyed a friendly encounter with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of the team as he stopped by Valdebebas during his trip to the Spanish capital. The president, who was also offered a Real Madrid jersey by skipper Iker Casillas, had positive comments to share with the Spanish giants. In a statement recorded by the club’s official website, Shimon Peres declared:

“I represent our children. That’s the best representation I can offer. I want you to know the depth of the love of all our boys and girls for Real Madrid.

“You are their heroes. They’d like to be like you. When they see you, they rise up. They can make a distinction between playing football and playing war.”

When asked about his personal love for football as well as his opinion concerning Real Madrid’s aspirations under Jose Mourinho, Shimon Peres was keen to answer. He stated:

“I have two feelings and one is of jealousy. I would like it if we could be like you. The other is ‘thanks’ because you are a very classic, organized and fighting group of people.

“And not fighting just against anybody, but rather fighting for a better world and a better generation.”

Remarkably, Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid have never lost a match on a weekend that follows a midweek meeting with a top personality. Last year on May 2, the Spanish giants beat Osasuna 3-2 after getting one on one with Hollywood star Russell Crowe a few days earlier.

Coincidentally, Real Madrid also secured a vital 4-2 victory over Villarreal in January this year after spending time with NFL star Ochocinco at Valdebebas. Well before that, Real Madrid had invited sprinter Usain Bolt to visit the Santiago Bernabeu as they kicked off their 2009/2010 La Liga campaign in style with a 3-2 victory over Deportivo La Coruña.

This weekend, Los Blancos will face Deportivo again at the Riazor where they last triumphed 3-1. They will be hoping that the tradition of winning after a special meeting with a top name continues. Real Madrid are second behind Barcelona with five points off the top of La Liga's table.
