From Arsenal to heaven
The arrival of Paul Burgess to the White House was a complete coup. It became news and it was already considered at that time as the best gardener in the world. He arrived from Arsenal in 2009 and now, before 2021 begins, he says goodbye to the merengue parish.
The pitch at the Santiago Bernabéu looked like never before. The area of the South End had always caused problems by giving it less light, but Burgess knew what to do to reverse the situation and that the green of the Madrid Coliseum was a real carpet during these more than eleven years. In addition, he also accepted the challenge of taking care of the Valdebebas fields and the gardens of the Sports City.
