Real Madrid have revealed their brand new Emirates A380 aircraft, which will be used to take players on arduous away trips in style.
It’s no standard model – the side of the plane is emblazoned with images of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo.
The interior, meanwhile, is nothing less than immaculate, with each player given a desk and TV to accompany them as they travel to the next away game. Even the seats look about as comfortable as plane seats can be.
As current European champions and La Liga leaders, it’s hard to begrudge the Los Blancos players an element of luxury during what is normally one of the more unpleasant aspects of being a professional footballer.
The players who have been selected by Emirates to feature on the plane were all present at the unveiling, posing for photos to show off the club’s new toy.
If there’s any negatives, it’s that coach Zinedine Zidane will certainly not be able to use jet lag as an excuse for any future away defeats
