The Spanish newspaper El Confidencial on Tuesday revealed sound recordings of Florentino Perez dating from 2006, where the president of Real Madrid attacked Iker Casillas, calling him “a scam” during a private conversation. Revelations that amused Gérard Piqué, who in his own way trolled the former doorman on social networks.
Gérard Piqué has a taste for tackling. Whether as a defender of FC Barcelona, whose colors he has been defending since 2008, or outside. The 2010 world champion took advantage of a controversy currently around Florentino Perez, to chamber on social networks his former selection partner Iker Casillas.
The Spanish newspaper El Confidencial broadcast this Tuesday wiretaps of Florentino Perez, dating from 2006, where the one who was no longer as president of Real Madrid, described Iker Casillas “of scam”. “Casillas is not a Real Madrid goalkeeper, what do you want me to tell you ?, Perez said to his interlocutor. He is not. He never has been. This has been our big failure. What happens is you have the ones who adore him, they want him, they talk to him, I don’t know. They defend him so much … well that’s one of the big scams and the second is Raul. “
“Is that what Florentino said about you in the audio recordings?”
A conversation that emerges 15 years later and which amused Gérard Piqué. On his last Instagram photo, where he appears without his beard captioning “Younger”, the Barça player received a comment from a certain Iker Casillas. “Mounguer”, replied the former Real keeper, is a pun between “Monguer” (to designate someone stupid) and “Younger”, used by Pique.
“That’s what Florentino said about you in the audio recordings, right?” Gérard Piqué trolled a few hours later, in response to Iker Casillas. With 725 games played between 1999 and 2015, and all the titles won with Real Madrid, it is difficult all the same with hindsight not to qualify Iker Casillas as a legend of the “White House”. After his retirement from sports last summer after an experience in Porto, Iker Casillas returned to Real Madrid in an advisory role to the president, to Florentino Perez of course. The Madrid leader has already announced for his part that he intends to take legal action after the disclosure of these recordings.
