Just 24 hours after audio from 2006 showed Perez making a vicious attack on club legends Raul and Iker Casillas as ‘the two great FRAUDS’ now another one surfaces.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez called Cristiano Ronaldo ‘an idiot’ and a ‘sick man’ as well as saying Jose Mourinho’s has ‘terrible ego’ in a 2012 discussion that has today been leaked in Spain.
A day after audio was uncovered of him calling Raul and Iker Casillas ‘the two great frauds’ at Real Madrid in a recorded chat in 2006, the president has had additional dated tape recordings broadcasted to the media.
The private discussions disclosed by El Confidencial on the Portuguese pair, the second of which has been dated at October 2012, only amplify to the humiliation for Perez so soon after the publishing of his Raul and Casillas attack.
‘He’s crazy,’ Perez was quoted as saying about Ronaldo.
‘This guy is an idiot, a sick man. You think this guy is normal, but he’s not normal, otherwise, he wouldn’t do all the things he does.’
Ronaldo went to Real Madrid in a record £80million deal from Manchester United in 2009 and, while he stays at the Bernabeu until 2018, his relationship with Perez was clearly fractious.
It is an awkward takedown of Ronaldo in retrospect provided the attacker advanced to become Real Madrid’s all-time main top goalscorer.
