Florentino Perez branded  Cristiano Ronaldo an ‘imbecile’ and Jose Mourinho ‘abnormal’ in audio recordings dating back to 2012 that were leaked on Wednesday.

The under-fire Real Madrid president has already vowed to take legal action after El Confidencial released details of an interview from 2009 during which Perez called Iker Casillas and Raul two of the biggest frauds in the club’s history.

Ronaldo and Mourinho teamed up at the Bernabeu in 2009 and helped the Spanish giants end the domestic dominance of Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona during Perez’s first spell at the helm.

Despite the silverware the pair helped deliver, the recordings highlight Perez’s unease at the the adulation they craved and enjoyed, while he also appeared to harbour a dislike of super agent Jorge Mendes who represents both Portuguese icons.

 

He is mad,’ Perez had said of Ronaldo in one of the audios released by El Confidencial. “This chap is an imbecile, he is ill.

‘Do you think this chap is normal? He is not normal, otherwise he wouldn’t do the things he does. The last foolish thing he did, everyone around the world saw it. Why do you think he does that foolish thing?’

 

Mendes does not order him, nor does he order Mourinho whatsoever,’ Perez said. ‘Zero. Not even for the interviews. These are guys with huge egos, both of them spoiled.

‘He and the coach don’t see the reality because the two could earn a lot more money if they were different. They are both abnormal because we are talking about a lot of money in image rights.

‘Furthermore, with that face they have, with that defiant manner that they are disliked by everyone….Advertising is the opposite, it is the complete opposite.’
