Watch: “The two biggest Real Madrid frauds are first Raul and second Casillas,” Leaked Audio Of Florentino Perez Sees Him Lambast Two Of The Clubs Biggest Legends

Leaked audio from back in 2006 of Florentino Perez has come to light with the Real Madrid President making a string of contentious statements

Ever since he’s been at the helm of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez has emerged as a widely hated and disliked favour. And the Spaniard managed to make matters worse for himself by spearheading the now disbanded European Super League.

A conglomeration of clubs from around the world, the ESL needed little time in being offloaded. Given the contentious brouhaha engulfing the marquee tournament, the Premier League participants were quick to distance themselves from the concept.

However, despite the clear angst and furore over the competition, Perez has refused to curb his aspirations. He has persistently talked about going ahead with the Super League, comments which have earned no love from the global stage.

Just when it looked like Perez couldn’t sink any further, the Real Madrid bigwig has managed to lose any lingering faith he had with football aficionadas around the world. Leaked audio of his comments back in 2006 have taken Spain and the footballing world by aplomb today owing to the content of these tapes.

Leaked Audio Sees Florentino Perez Calls Raul And Casillas Frauds

While Perez has gone onto make a string of outlandish comments, the ones which have hurt Real Madrid supporters the most is his tirade at legends Iker Casillas and Raul. Perez not only slandered the two but went as far as to call them frauds.

“Casillas is not a Real Madrid standard goalkeeper, what can I say? He’s not and never has been. He has been a big failure of ours. The problem is people adore him, love him, talk to him, they defend him so much,” the leaked audio said.

“He is one of the biggest frauds and the other is Raul, the two biggest Real Madrid frauds are first Raul and second Casillas.”

Perez continues by referring to Raul as an extremely selfish and negative figure who did everything only for his own benefit. It remains to be seen how Raul reacts to the comments given that he’s currently serving in the capacity of a head coach in Real Madrid’s coaching setup.

Perez also went onto call Raul has a player who was achieving nothing for the club owing to his inability to draw in merchandise sales.
