    Lorenzo Sanz with the Champions League trophy

    Real Madrid won the Champions League twice when Lorenzo Sanz was president

    Former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz died on Saturday after being hospitalised with coronavirus.

    Sanz, 76, was president at the Bernabeu from 1995-2000, a period in which Real won the Champions League twice.

    “My father has just died,” wrote Sanz’s son Lorenzo Sanz Duran on Twitter.

    “He did not deserve this end in this manner. One of the best, most courageous and hard working people I have seen in my life. His family and Real Madrid were his passion.”

    Sanz signed players such as Roberto Carlos, Clarence Seedorf and Davor Suker during his time in charge of the 33-time Spanish champions,

    He lost the 2000 presidential election to Florentino Perez, which sparked Real’s big-spending ‘Galatico’ era.

    Sanz’s son Fernando, 46, played for Real Madrid from 1996-1999 before spending the final seven years of his career at Malaga.
