The Mayor of Madrid, Ana Botella announced that at the next city hall meeting, she will put forth a proposal to rename one of the city’s streets in honour of former Spanish national team manager, Luis Aragonés, who passed away on Saturday morning after a long battle with Leukemia.


In an interview with reporters on Saturday evening, Botella stated that the proposal, which would  name a street adjacent to Atletico Madrid’s currently unbuilt La Peineta stadium, was a “very good idea” and that she hopes that the other members of the city would pass the proposal in honour of “one of the most important athletes Spain has ever had.”

“Luis Aragonés was a great athlete, one of the most important athletes Spain has every had.

“I am sad for the passing of the man that showed the character of Madrid.  Of course, the city of Madrid will pay a tribute to Luis Aragonés.”
