Further leaked audio about Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has been released, calling Cristiano Ronaldo an “idiot” and Jose Mourinho an “abnormal”.
Mourinho joined Real Madrid in 2010 and ran the club for three seasons. His compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo was instrumental in his success at the Santiago Bernabeu.
After the release of a leaked audio recording by Perez in 2006, El Confidential have now revealed some scathing comments from the Real Madrid Supremo on Cristiano Ronaldo and Mourinho.
In the audio, Perez says that Cristiano Ronaldo is “doing this stupid thing” but it’s still unclear exactly what he’s referring to.
“He’s crazy. This guy is an idiot, he’s sick,” Real Madrid President Perez said in one of the audios about Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Do you think this guy is normal? He’s not normal or he wouldn’t be doing the things he does. The last stupid thing he did saw everyone around the world.
“Why do you think he’s doing such a stupid thing?”
Perez hasn’t spared former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho after attacking Cristiano Ronaldo
Perez also did not spare Jose Mourinho, claiming that he did not understand the image rights.
“Mendes does not command him, nor does he command Mourinho,” said Perez. “Zero. Not even for the interviews. These are guys with a huge ego, both spoiled.
“He and the coach don’t see the reality because the two could make a lot more money if they were different. They’re both abnormal because we’re talking about a lot of money in image rights.”
“Also with that face that they have, with that defiant way that everyone doesn’t like them. … Advertising is the opposite, it’s the exact opposite.”
It remains to be seen how Perez will react to the statements made as the leaked audios have got him into trouble at Real Madrid.
As for Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho, the duo have had successful careers at Real Madrid and elsewhere, so they may not care too much about what has been said.
