After arriving expectantly late for his own hastily arranged press conference, these are the best Florentino Pérez jokes as he announces that Real Madrid manager Rafael Benítez has been sacked and replaced with Zinedine Zidane.

The trigger-happy club president finally arrived and read a familiar-sounding statement as he appointed the eleventh head coach of his twelve year reign.

Whilst waiting for the inevitable, people made Florentino Pérez jokes:

Perez is 15 minutes late for his press conference. If only he waited this long before hiring Rafa he wouldn't have made such a big mistake.
