Florentino Pérez makes first visit to Valdebebas after lung operation

Just three days after undergoing surgery for a lung condition, Real Madrid’s president was greeted the players and coaching staff at the training ground.

Update:
Florentino Pérez greets Vinicius before the start of the training session.

Barely three days after having undergone surgery to remove a nodule from his lung, Florentino Pérez visited Valdebebas, as he does most Fridays, to greet Real Madrid’s players and coaching staff ahead of Sunday’s game against Girona. The Madrid president was seen chatting with the players, especially those who are carrying knocks and injuries - Benzema, Modric and Ceballos, inquiring about how the players are shaping up and their availability for Sunday’s match. Likewise, the players asked him about his well being and he he was feeling after his operation.

At 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Florentino Pérez underwent an operation for a lung condition. He was diagnosed with a benign pulmonary nodule, and underwent a procedure to have it extracted at the Puerta de Hierro Hospital in Majadahonda. The operation was a complete success. His prognosis was favorable and he was ordered to rest for a few days post-op. For that reason, he was unable to travel to Germany for the Champions League Matchday 5 game against Red Bull Leipzig - a match which Ancelotti’s team ended losing 3-2. His presence in Valdebebas today demonstrates that he is fully on the mend. On Sunday, he will preside over the match against Girona from the Palco de Honor at the Santiago Bernabéu.
