Florentino Perez: Raul and Casillas are Real Madrid’s biggest frauds

leaked audio from 2006 has revealed that Florentino Perez had some very interesting things to say about Real Madrid legends Iker Casillas and Raul Gonzalez.

The president of Los Blancos was far from impressed with the pair and didn’t hold back in his criticisms of two players he felt were undeserving of their status.

Casillas is not a Real Madrid standard goalkeeper, what can I say? He’s not and never has been,” said Perez in comments published by El Confidencial.

“He has been a big failure of ours. The problem is people adore him, love him, talk to him, they defend him so much.

“He is one of the biggest frauds and the other is Raul, the two biggest Real Madrid frauds are first Raul and second Casillas.”

These two club icons were singled out, but Perez also revealed a poor opinion of the players in general.

“The players are very selfish, you can’t count on them for anything,” said Perez.

“If you do, you’ve made a mistake and they’ll let you down, it’s ridiculous.

“I have an awful view of the players.”

The comments came in 2006, when Florentino Perez stood down as Real Madrid president and put particular blame on Raul as part of the reason behind why he arrived at that decision.
