Real Madrid President Florentino Perez Leaked Audio
Perez appears to have not been influenced by Raul or Casillas, both of whom were crucial to Real Madrid’s success in the early 21st century. He clearly thinks or used to think, that they do not deserve the fame and admiration that they receive from the believers of the Santiago Bernabeu.
In comments published by El Confidential (as relayed by Marca), Perez says:
“Casillas is not a Real Madrid standard goalkeeper, what can I say? He is not and never has been. He has been a huge failure of ours. The problem is people love him, love him, talk to him We do.”
“He is one of the biggest frauds and second is Raul, the two biggest Real Madrid frauds are first Raul and second Casillas. Players are very selfish, you can’t trust them for anything. If you do, you’ve made a mistake and they’ll disappoint you, that’s ridiculous>’
He accepted that he is not a fan of these players.
“I have an awful view of the players.”
The remarks were reportedly made in 2006 after Florentino Perez stepped down from the presidency. He blames Raul for arriving at that decision.
Iker Casillas is currently the assistant general director of the club’s foundation and Ral is the coach of the Real Madrid B team.
From1999 to 2015 Casillas spent approx 16 years at Real Madrid and did not get the deserved farewell. He has won three Champions League, five La Liga titles. Two Copa del Reys, four Supercopa d’Espanas, two European Super Cups, one Club World Cup, and two Intercontinental Cups with Real Madrid.
Spaniard is also won the two Euro Cups and a World Cup with the national team.
Raul broke the first team establishment in 1994 and remained at the club until 2010 when he left for Schalke. They have won six La Liga titles, three Champions League titles, four Supercopa d’Espanas, one European Super Cup and two Intercontinental Cups.
Suffice to say, Raul and Casillas have really garnered their legendary status at the club and are fan favorites.
