Real Madrid president Florentino Perez in 2012 called Cristiano Ronaldo an idiot and Mourinho abnormal in leaked audio.
Audio leaks by Perez are currently being released by El Confidencial via Marca with the Madrid head rebuffing the move. The Ronald and Mourinho cases come just a day after Perez was heard labelling club legends Raul and Iker Casillas as the two biggest frauds in the club’s history.
“He’s crazy,” Florentino said of Cristiano. “This guy is an idiot, a sick man. You think this guy is normal but he’s not normal, otherwise, he wouldn’t do all the things he does. The last nonsense he did, the whole world saw it. Why do you think he does that stupid thing?”
With regard to Mourinho, Florentino honed in on his relationship with super-agent Jorge Mendes. “Mendes doesn’t control [Cristiano], just like he doesn’t control Mourinho. Zero weight. These are guys with a serious ego, both spoiled, and they don’t see reality because they could both earn a lot more money if they were otherwise inclined.
“These two are abnormal because we’re talking about a lot of money in respect to image rights. Also, with that face they have, that defiant way, that everyone dislikes them; if the publicity is the opposite, it’s the opposite!”
Cristiano joined Madrid from Manchester United in the summer of 2009 and went on to spend nine productive years in the Spanish capital before joining Juventus in 2018
Mourinho joined Madrid after leading Inter to a treble in 2010, staying in the Spanish capital until 2013. In that time he won three trophies; La Liga, the Copa del Rey, and the Supercopa de Espana
