The Daily Merengue is a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!

Shoutout to the mods who do a fantastic job, Valyrian Steel, KungFuZizou, NeRObutBlanco, Felipejack, and Juninho!

Youngest player in Real Madrid’s history to win 4 titles with the club.

ICYMI: Santamaria: “There was no party the night of the 7-3 European Cup win over Frankfurt”

In this article by Robert Husby, Real Madrid legend Jose Santamaria reflected on the night Real Madrid won its fifth consecutive European Cup against Frankfurt in 1960.

“When we got to the hotel we thought of saying to Bernabéu: “President, we will have to go for a walk to celebrate it”. His response was blunt: “No one leaves here. Tomorrow we have to get to Madrid fresh to be with the fans with the best face possible. You have to give everything for them.”
