Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has landed himself in hot water for the third time in a matter of months after leaked audio recordings emerged of him slating Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho.
Another old audio clip released this week depicted Perez referring to Madrid legends Raul and Iker Casillas as “great frauds”, that Raul was “destroying Madrid” and that Casillas was only ever picked by Madrid because he was popular with the fanbase.
Perez is now alleged to have launched into an experlative-filled rant at club icon Ronaldo, while tearing into his agent Jorge Mendes and former Madrid boss Mourinho.
These comments come just months after Perez was at the forefront of the ill-fated ‘The European Super League’, a breakaway competition designed to give Madrid and the other founding clubs more financial security.
Now, the controversial club president has been caught on audio recording speaking about Ronaldo, who is Madrid’s all-time record goalscorer with 450 goals in all competitions, as “an idiot”.
Perez is alleged to have said of Ronaldo, via Marca: “He’s crazy. This guy is an idiot, a sick man.
