Onieva to stand for Real Madrid presidency

Former Real Madrid vice president Juan Onieva plans to stand in next month's elections for the presidency of the club and wants to bring in Almeria's Mexican coach Hugo Sanchez if he wins, he said. Onieva, a businessman and lawyer, told a news conference on Thursday his blueprint for the club would focus on bringing players from the youth system into the first team and having more Spanish players although he did not name any potential signings. Candidates for the June 14 vote can register from Friday until May 31. Former president Florentino Perez, architect of the "Galacticos" policy that brought Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham to Madrid, has also said he will stand.
