Online petitions demanding that Real Madrid’s first five European titles be revoked has garnered a total of 50,000 signatures on change.org. The petition which kicked off few days back by a certain Justicia Deportiva – (Sporting Justice) reads thus.
“We wish to request, in the name of the values represented by the sport
and by democracy, that Real Madrid’s 5 ‘European Cups’ won between
1955-56 and 1959-60, be immediately revoked in recognition
of the fact that those trophies in no way correspond to the competition recognized today as the UEFA Champions League”.
So what they are saying in essence is that every time a format is changed the title holder should
be stripped off their title? Very funny!
