In an exclusive interview with Movistar+, tennis legend Rafa Nadal offered unexpected insights into the possibility of him assuming the role of Real Madrid president.

In a candid moment, Nadal stated: “I promise that it’s not always been a dream or a goal of mine. But if you ask me if I’d like to be Real Madrid president, I think I would.”

Nadal’s remarks have stirred intrigue among Real Madrid fans and the wider sporting community, as his humility and dedication have long been admired.

Nevertheless, he was quick to express his respect for the current Real Madrid president, acknowledging the strong leadership in place. In a lighter tone, he also playfully noted: “And I also feel like you [journalists] like to create some narratives and headlines [laughs].”

What makes Nadal’s comments particularly fascinating is that they hint at a potential career shift that few could have foreseen.

Known for his tireless work ethic and determination on the tennis court, Nadal’s contemplation of a role in football management underscores his versatility and ambition beyond his sport.

However, Nadal remained grounded in his self-assessment, stating: “You have to know if you’re capable of doing that type of thing.”

“I’m quite realistic with myself; I more or less know my limitations. I don’t know if I’d be capable of doing it or not. Anyway, time will tell,” he added.

Nadal’s willingness to entertain the idea of the Real Madrid presidency, even as a remote possibility, reflects his deep connection with the club and the allure of a role that extends beyond the realm of sports.
