His vicious criticism of the two club legends came in a confidential conversation in September 2006, six months after his introductory tenure as president came to a finish.

Perez claims that striker Raul of ‘destroying’ Real Madrid through his negativity and accuses him for his exit initial that year, while Casillas is characterized as a ‘great failure’.

He adds: ‘The two great Real Madrid scams are Raul first and Casillas second.’

Spanish website El Confidencial have publicized the conversation from 15 years ago and it is apt to cause shame for Perez, who reinstated to the presidency in 2009 and continues in post.

Raul is the now manager of Real Madrid Castilla, the club’s reserve team, and so is an employee of Perez. The 74-year-old has yet to respond to the tape.

Perez step down from office of Real Madrid president on February 27, 2006 having come in for criticism for focusing too much on the club’s worldwide class appeal as defied to achievement on the pitch.

The discussion that has come to light came in September of that year, after Ramon Calderon had succeeded him as president.

About Casillas, the Spanish shot stopper who played 725 matches for the club, Perez is recounted to have said: ‘He is not a goalkeeper for Real Madrid. He is not and he never has been. It has been the great failure we have had.

‘What happens is that they [the fans] adore him, they love him, they talk to him. I don’t know why they defend him so much.

‘Well, it’s one of the great frauds, the second is Raul. The two great Real Madrid frauds are Raul first and Casillas second.’

Perez then elaborates on his criticism of Spanish forward Raul, who scored 323 goals in 741 matches for the club. He is Real’s second-highest goalscorer of all-time and their highest appearance maker.

‘Raul is bad, he believes that Madrid is his and uses everything that is in Madrid for his own benefit,’ Perez told.

‘He is a negative figure, he is destroying Madrid and the morale of the players so that they say: “It is Madrid that is bad, not Raul.” It is terrible how bad the boy is.’

Raul, boss of Real Madrid Castilla for two years having formerly coaches the under-15 side.

The disclosure comes at a time when Perez is under fire for his well-known role in efforts to establish a European Super League earlier this year in direct competition to UEFA’s Champions League.

At the outset of July, a Spanish court ordered UEFA to cancel all legal embargoes imposed on Real, Barcelona and Juventus, the three clubs of the original 12 parties who didn’t formally disavow themselves of the Super League program.

The triad have still been acknowledged into the Champions League in the season ahead despite UEFA threatening to prevent them from their competitions as a penalty.
