A new statement by the Real Madrid president has come to light wherein he is harshly critical of arguably the club’s best player of all time.
Cristiano Ronaldo has allegedly been called “crazy” and “abnormal”, among other derogatory adjectives, by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, according to a leaked audio clip.
Perez was left red-faced when audio was released of him on Tuesday in which he labeled Raul and Iker Casillas – two of Real Madrid’s best and most decorated players – as “the two great frauds”.
The audio was of a recorded conversation back in 2006, and just within 24 hours, another conversation dating back to October 2012 has been leaked to put the 74-year-old in further hot water.
“You think this guy is normal but he’s not normal, otherwise, he wouldn’t do all the things he does. The last nonsense he did, the whole world saw it. Why do you think he does that stupid thing?
“Mendes doesn’t control [Cristiano], just like he doesn’t control Mourinho. Zero weight. These are guys with a serious ego, both spoiled, and they don’t see reality because they could both earn a lot more money if they were otherwise inclined.
“These two are abnormal because we’re talking about a lot of money in respect to image rights. Also, with that face they have, that defiant way, that everyone dislikes them; if the publicity is the opposite, it’s the opposite!”
