In Spain a scandal arose with the leak of some conversations of Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid, who charged against two club legends such as Iker Casillas and Raúl González. The audios that the newspaper El Confidencial revealed date from 2006 and Florentino Pérez can be heard ranting against the footballers who shone at Real Madrid and are considered idols of the club.
"Casillas is not a goalkeeper for Real Madrid, what do you want me to tell you. He is not. He has never been. It has been the great failure we have had. What happens is that you have those who adore him, him they want, they talk to him ... They defend him so much ... Well, it is one of the great scams and the second is Raúl. The two great Madrid scams are Raúl and Casillas second, "the Spanish media transcribed.
Once the audios were released, Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid between 2000 and 2006 and reelected in 2009, came out to clarify the situation and said that the conversation was secretly recorded. "The phrases reproduced are pronounced in conversations clandestinely recorded by (the journalist) Mr. José Antonio Abellán, who has been trying to sell them for many years without success," Pérez said in an official statement from the merengue club on Tuesday.
The truth is that it is really shameful that something like this happens, taking into account the magnitude of the stars that he involves in his words, and all that they have given to Real Madrid. However, this not all. Currently, Iker Casillas, serves as the club's ambassador and is vice president of the Foundation, and Raúl is the coach of Real Madrid Castilla, which has sparked a controversy indoors, which may have its consequences. It only remains to wait.
