Spain: President Sassou Nguesso in the den of Real Madrid
Congolese Head of State Denis Sassou N’Guesso as guest of the Spanish club Real Madrid. Present in the Spanish capital, where he participated in the COP 25 climate conference, the Congolese leader made a detour Tuesday by the legendary Santiago Bernabeu stadium, owned by the Madrid club.
Received by the president of the club, Florentino Pérez, Sassou N’Guesso was able to cross the box of honor, the cloakrooms, the field and the museum, before being offered a jersey of the team which bears his name and the number 1, as well as a silver replica of the Santiago Bernabéu, indicates the site of Real Madrid.
On the social networks, the comments following this visit are shared between pride and disappointment. Despite the harsh comments that regret that the President of the Republic of Congo go to plebiscite one of the best clubs in the world while the Congolese championship is dying, many dare to see in this meeting the beginning of a possible partnership between this giant of the ball and Congolese football.
