Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez has come out to react after he was secretly recorded calling Iker Casillas and Raul “frauds.” He recently revealed that his comments on both players have clearly been taken out of context.
According to him, the audio was simply leaked because of his involvement in the controversial Super League plans and it is the handiwork of a man who sells recording for money.
Perez added that his lawyers are currently looking into the matter and they’ll take it up from here.
His words, “Following the article published by El Confidencial that features comments that I have been credited as having made, I believe that it is important to clarify that the published quotes were part of conversations secretly recorded by Mr Jose Antonio Abellan, who has been trying to sell the recordings for many years without any success.”
“I find it surprising that they have been published today by El Confidencial, despite the time that has elapsed. They are isolated quotes that were part of conversations and have been taken out of the wider context in which they were made.”
“I understand that the fact that they have been published now, so many years on from the time the conversations took place, owes to my involvement as one of the driving forces behind the Super League.”
“I have placed the matter in the hands of my lawyers, who are examining the course of action to be taken.”
