European reports quoted previous recorded statements of the current Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, describing Iker Casillas and Raul Gonzalez with harsh words.
And the Spanish magazine “El Confidential” published a leaked audio recording of Perez dating back to September 2006, speaking harshly about the former Real Madrid duo.
* In 2006, Perez had submitted his resignation from the presidency of Real Madrid to be elected Ramon Calderon, before the return of Perez again in 2009 until now.
Perez said in the audio recording: “Casillas is not a goalkeeper for a club like Real Madrid, what do you want me to tell you? He was never like that, it was the great failure we faced.”
He added: “What happened is that you have people who adore him, they love him, they talk to him, they defend him a lot. It is one of the biggest tricks and the second was Raul. Madrid’s two big cheats are the first Raul and the second Casillas.”
It is worth noting that Raul is currently in charge of the technical leadership of Real Madrid Castilla, while Casillas is the deputy director of the club’s foundation.
“Casillas is not a goalkeeper for Real Madrid. It has been the great failure we have had, what happens is that they adore him … He is one of the great scams, the second is Raul. The two great Real Madrid scams.” A reflection delivered in September 2006 https://t.co/ribfspSvHv pic.twitter.com/pWAAsK35Ez
