Report: Madrid president Calderon to quit

Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon was expected to resign on Friday according to the Spanish newspaper which revealed that he manipulated a general assembly vote.
Marca newspaper said on Thursday that Calderon's staff has urged the 57-year-old lawyer to step down following revelations that his aides allowed up to 200 nonmembers into a Dec. 7 assembly, where Calderon saw his budget _ in effect a vote of confidence _ pass by only 47 votes.
Calderon, who fired two close aides on Wednesday, denied any knowledge of the scandal and insisted he would not resign since he had no direct relations with any of the fraudulent members, despite pictures published on Thursday showing that he and his family are friends with several of the identified ones.
Marca said vice president Vicente Boluda would take over the president's duties.
