Real Madrid Boss, Florentino Calls Ronaldo an Idiot in recording
A storm has erupted at Real Madrid after a leaked audio recording emerged showing club president Florentino Perez branding Iker Casillas and Raul as “great frauds”.
Casillas and Raul became club legends over a combined 43 years in the Spanish capital, enabling Los Blancos to capture seven La Liga titles between them.
Raul will depart the Bernabeu in 2010, going to Schalke after an injury-plagued last season with the Spanish giants, having scored over 300 goals.
In the meanwhile, goalkeeper Casillas ran afoul of Jose Mourinho and was ejected from the Spanish capital after appearing in over 700 games for the team.
Despite their legendary reputation among many fans and observers, a hidden tape of Perez blasting the duo from a 2006 conversation has surfaced.
The discussion took place six months after he resigned from his first term as president, following allegations that he had prioritized brand appeal over football performance.
“He isn’t a Real Madrid goalie. He isn’t, and he hasn’t ever been. According to El Confidencial, Perez remarked of Casillas, “It has been the greatest failure we have had.”
“What occurs is that they [the followers] admire, love, and converse with him. I’m not sure why they are so adamant about defending him.
“Well, it’s one of the great con artists, the other being Raul. Raul and Casillas are the two greatest Real Madrid swindlers.”
Perez then focused his rage on Raul, accusing him of “destroying” the club and blaming him for his resignation as president.
“[Zinedine] Zidane is a fantastic person. And Ronaldo and [David] Beckham. … Others, on the other hand, believe that… Let’s see what happens. Perez stated, “Raul is a horrible person.”
“He considers Madrid to be his, and he makes the most of it by developing everything for his personal profit. He and his representative. They are to blame for Madrid’s poor performance.
“Look, I left for a variety of reasons, one of which was him. He’s a downer who’s wreaking havoc on Madrid.”
The recording’s release will not just create humiliation due to Raul and Casillas’ position as club legends.
Before Carlo Ancelotti’s hiring, the former was connected with taking over from Zinedine Zidane as manager of Real Madrid Castilla, the club’s reserve side.
In a statement, Perez claimed that the audio was only released to damage him in the wake of the European Super League scandal.
“Given the news broadcast in El Confidencial, in which phrases attributed to me are reported, I think it is necessary to clarify,” the statement read.
“The reproduced phrases are pronounced in conversations clandestinely recorded by Mr. Jose Antonio Abellan, who has been trying to sell them for many years without success.
“It is surprising now that, despite the time that has elapsed, the newspaper El Confidencial reports them today.
