The great Enrique Pérez Díaz of Real Madrid, best known as Pachín, died at 82 years of age.

The Spanish giants announced the news of Wednesday’s passing of the former defender.

Between 1959 and 1968, Pachín made 218 appearances for Madrid and was part of one of the most prosperous times for the club.

Throughout his nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu, he won two European Cups, one Intercontinental Cup, seven LaLiga titles, and one Spanish Super Cup.

Madrid paid tribute on their official website to the eight-cap Spain International.

Real Madrid would like to express its sympathy and warmth to his wife, Mercedes, to his daughters, Cristina and Mercedes, to his grandchildren, Javier and Cristina, and all his relatives and loved ones.

“Real Madrid, the club to which he was associated with throughout his life, extends its condolences to all of Madridismo.”

During his playing days, before a long coaching career that saw him manage 12 different teams, including Madrid’s youth side, Pachín also represented Gimnastica, Burgos, Osasuna, Real Betis, and Toluca.

At the age of 82, Pachin – who won two European Cups and seven LaLiga titles as a Real Madrid defender – passed away.
