He was not silent. One of the greatest idols of Real Madrid spoke about the audios of Florentino Pérez that have been broadcast in recent days. After the end of the duel that the legends of the "White House" and FC Barcelona had, Luis Figo pointed out that the president of the merengue team asked him for forgiveness and that some expressions may be out of context.
“In a private conversation there may be expressions that are out of context. I have had the opportunity to speak with him and he has excused himself with me, so the matter is closed", said Figo in statements to the press. "I spoke with him but it is a private conversation, he has excused himself and for me it is a closed matter," said the former player who arrived at Real Madrid after being part of FC Barcelona.
The Portuguese was one of the many players that Florentino referred to in the audios that ‘El Confidencial’ leaked. In one of them, the president of the meringues pointed out that “Figo is the one who fucks the locker room. He was a son of a bitch, like Raúl. The two worst have been Figo and Raúl ”.
“Figo arrived and became a close friend of Raúl and between the two of them, with Hierro, they managed the squad. Poor Vicente, if Vicente did not paint anything ”, was another of the references that Pérez made about the former Portuguese player, when he spoke about the work of the then coach Vicente del Bosque.
