Perez responds to leaked audios maligning Ronaldo, Mourinho, and more

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez released an official statement defending himself after an audio recording leaked calling Cristiano Ronaldo an “idiot” and Los Blancos Legends Raul and Iker Casillas “the two greatest deceivers”.

The club says the “clandestine” recording was from a private conversation in 2006, less than a year after Perez stepped down from his first term as president. The recording was published by a Spanish newspaper El Confidential earlier this week.

Perez, 74, responded in a statement on the club’s official website, saying his comments were “out of context”.

The statement reads: “The published quotations were part of conversations secretly recorded by Mr. José Antonio Abellán, who has been trying unsuccessfully to sell the recordings for many years. I find it surprising that, despite the elapsed time, they were released today by El Confidencial.

“They are isolated quotes that were part of conversations and were taken out of the larger context in which they were made.

“I understand that the fact that they have been released now, so many years after the talks, is thanks to my dedication as one of the driving forces behind the Super League.

“I have put the matter in the hands of my lawyers who are looking into how to proceed.”

Among the players discussed on the El Confidencial audio reviews was Casillas, his Mom had previously claimed Perez forced him out of the club. He is dubbed ‘the best goalkeeper in our history’ on the Real Madrid website, but according to El Confidencial, Perez said, “Casillas is not a set Real Madrid goalkeeper. What can I say? He isn’t and has never been.

“He was a big failure of ours. The problem is, people adore him, love him, talk to him, they defend him so much.

“He’s one of the biggest scammers and the other is Raul. Real Madrid’s two biggest scammers are first Raul and second Casillas.”

Meanwhile, Raul won six La Liga titles with Blancos and half as many Champions League trophies, a competition in which he previously held the record for most goals (71). Said record was subsequently broken by Cristiano Ronaldo, reported by El Confidencial Perez said: “He’s crazy. This guy’s an idiot, a sick man. You think this guy’s normal, but he’s not normal, otherwise he wouldn’t do all of what he does.

“The last nonsense he made saw the whole world. Why do you think he’s doing the stupid thing? “

Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes also represents former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

The trio was also among the subjects examined in the snippets of Perez published by the Spanish publication: “Mendes does not control [Cristiano]just as he doesn’t control Mourinho. Zero weight. These are guys with a serious ego, both spoiled, and they don’t see reality because they could both make a lot more money if their minds were different.

“These two are abnormal because there is a lot of money involved in image rights. Even with that face, they have that defiant manner that everyone doesn’t like them; if the advertising is the opposite, it is the opposite! “

Mourinho oversaw what Perez publicly dubbed “the worst game in Real Madrid history” when they lost 5-0 to Pep Guardiolas Barcelona in late 2010. However, at the time he showed support for Mourinho and the team bounced back to win La Liga the following season.
