In an audio tape from 2006 that was leaked Tuesday, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez called former players Iker Casillas and Raul Gonzalez the “worst frauds” in the club’s history.

Perez was speaking after quitting the job of Real Madrid president for the first time, a choice he stated was partially due to Raul in the leaked tape.

Both Casillas and Raul left the club during Perez’s second stint, but have subsequently returned after retiring from the game. Raul is the coach of Castilla’s B squad, while Casillas works for the Real Madrid Foundation.

“What do you want me to say? He isn’t good enough to play goalkeeper for Real Madrid.” In the recording, which was originally published in El Confidencial, Perez says about Casillas. “No, he’s not. He’s never been that way.”

“It was a huge mistake on our part. What’s occurred is that [broken audio] have fallen in love with him and want to talk with him. I’m not sure. They go to great lengths to defend him. But, well, he’s one of Madrid’s biggest frauds. Raul is the second. Raul and Casillas are the two biggest frauds in Madrid.

“[Zinedine] Zidane is a fantastic person. And then there’s [David] Beckham and Ronaldo. But then there’s the rest.

“He considers Madrid to be his, and he takes use of everything it has to offer, exploiting everything for his own benefit.” He and his agent. They are to blame for Madrid’s poor performance.

Later that day, Madrid issued a statement on Perez’s behalf, claiming that the tape was leaked as a result of his role in pushing the recently canceled European Super League proposal.

“Given the report in El Confidencial, in which statements are attributed to me,” the statement said, “I believe it’s important to clarify:

“The remarks have been removed from the context in which they were uttered. I feel it is because of my involvement as one of the promoters of the European Super League that they are being recreated now, after so many years.

“I’ve handed the matter to my attorneys, who are investigating legal options.”
