ESPN Digital recapitulates the most important words of the top executive of ‘La Casa Blanca’ against figures such as Raúl, Iker Casillas, Cristiano, Mourinho, among others
The president of Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez, has been at the center of world controversy after various audios were leaked in which the top leader of the ‘White House’ criticized great figures who have passed through the institution.
In the audios published by ‘The confidential’, Perez, who accused José Antonio Abellán of clandestinely recording the conversations, rants against Madridismo symbols such as Raúl, Iker Casillas and Fernando Hierro. Similarly, the Spanish businessman charged against Iberian media and described Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the great idols of the merengue fans, as “sick”.
ESPN Digital recapitulates the most controversial phrases of Florentino Pérez and the figures he criticized:
IKER CASILLAS AND RAÚL GONZÁLEZ
The exporter of the Spanish National Team and World Champion in South Africa 2010 was the victim of Florentino, who described the former Porto player as a “scam”, the same word he used to refer to the ‘Angel of Madrid’, Raúl.
The phrase: “He is not a goalkeeper for Real Madrid, what do you want me to tell you. He is not. He has never been. It has been the great failure we have had. What happens is that there are those who adore him, they want to talk with him … I don’t know, they defend him so much. But, well, it’s one of the great scams. The second is Raúl. The two great Madrid scams are Raúl first and Casillas second. “
CRISTIANO RONALDO AND JOSÉ MOURINHO
Ronaldo is the top scorer in Real Madrid history with more than 450 goals scored in 438 games, while Mourinho is remembered for bringing Madrid back to the European elite. However, Pérez described the ‘Bug’ and ‘Special One’ as unusual people.
The phrase: “Cristiano Ronaldo is crazy. This guy is an idiot, a sick man. You think that this guy is normal, but he is not normal, otherwise, he would not do all the things he does. Cristiano and Mourinho are two abnormals (…) Also, with that face they have, with that defiant way, they dislike everyone “.
VICENTE DEL BOSQUE
The Spanish coach who was crowned World Champion with Spain in 2010 was the commander of the ‘Galacticos’ who made history and captivated world football, but the president of Madrid described the Iberian as a “chump.”
The phrase: “They don’t offer him a job because everyone knows he’s not a coach. Del Bosque’s thing is the biggest lie I’ve seen in my life. Vicente del Bosque doesn’t know how to train or know about tactics. He’s a chump.”
THE ‘FIFTH OF THE VULTURE’
In one of the most recent audios, Florentino lashes out at key figures from one of the golden ages of the ‘White House’ by indicating that they want to continue “living” off their exploits as Madrid footballers.
The phrase: “These what they want is to collect 100 million (pesetas, about 600,000 euros) a year from Madrid. They are very clear about it. But all of them: the ‘Buitre’, Míchel, Martín Vázquez, Sanchís … the ‘Quinta del Buitre ‘, whole. They want to live the whole life of Real Madrid, until they die. “
LUIS FIGO AND FERNANDO HIERRO
Figo, one of the most controversial signings in the history of Real Madrid, was accused along with Hierro, of controlling the white dressing room in their time as players.
Florentino’s phrase was: “Figo arrived and became a close friend of Raúl and between the two, with Hierro, they managed the squad. Poor Vicente (Del Bosque), if Vicente didn’t paint anything.”
Florentino has always distinguished himself by having a relationship with Real Madrid players, however, the manager showed that he has a negative opinion about the majority of footballers.
The phrase: “I have a horrible concept of the players, male, horrible, horrible. Look, I have seen groups, but I have never seen one like that of footballers.”
In one of the last audios published by ‘El Confidencial’, Florentino harshly charges against various Iberian media, but especially against the Spanish newspaper Marca.
“We must win the battle of MARCA and Televisión Española. And with that we isolate, not El País, who does not behave badly, but Relaño and De la Morena. El Rondo will no longer exist. What the BRAND has done it is an unworthy and miserable thing. And what Spanish Television has done being public “.
