After Real Madrid posted a 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Sunday night, the players were treated to expensive Audi Cars. In attendance were the players who accepted the car keys from the children of the members of the club along with President Florentino Perez. The cars were stationed inside the stadiums lawns and the keys for their fantastic rides were given out there and then. 25 players of the squad and manager, Jose Mourinho received these luxurious cars as part of the deal between the German car maker and the club signed in 2003.
Only absentee during the ceremony was Sami Khedira who was in Germany due to personal reasons forcing him to miss training and will be available for the game versus Sporting Gijon.
Jose Mourinho, Xabi Alonso, Sergio Ramos, Arbeloa, Mesut Ozil and Iker Casillas opted for the A7 sportback in gray. Cristiano Ronaldo who already boasts of glorious cars in his garage took home a blue RS5 while Kaka opted for RS6. The most requested for cars were the Q7 and Q5.
During the event Perez said – “La exigencia es enorme y hay que seguir trabajando, pero ahora vamos en la dirección adecuada” which roughly translates to “we consider them as if they were our 12th man.” A very strange comment to call the brand as their 12th man and not the fans!
