Madrid sees a conspiracy in Florentino’s audios

Real Madrid does not consider the publication in the digital newspaper El Confidencial of some audios from 2006 in which the then-resigned president Florentino Pérez criticized several players from the club, mainly Iker Casillas and Raúl González. Sources of the entity believe that it is a conspiracy to undermine Pérez’s credibility at a time when he has become the Super League flag in front of institutions such as UEFA and the Professional Football League, that pressure at all levels to bring down the project.

The club understands that this is the only way to explain the leak of conversations from fifteen years ago and that They occurred when Florentino Pérez had already resigned as president of the entity. It should be remembered that Pérez won the elections in 2000 and after a successful stage (one Champions League and two Leagues) decided to resign at a time of sports crisis.

Madrid understands that the leak responds to a strategy to try to overthrow his project to modify European competitions, supported by Barcelona and Juventus and initially also by Atlético de Madrid and several English clubs. The latter had to back down due to pressure from UEFA and their own government. Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus maintained their position and have received the support of the Commercial Court number 17 of Madrid for the legitimacy of their plan. In fact, UEFA opened a sanctioning file against the three clubs with the intention of removing them from European competitions, but its Appeal Committee had to back down pending a resolution from the Superior Court of Justice of the European Union, which must rule on whether the highest body of continental football is committing an abuse of dominant position.

The club is studying the possibility of taking legal action against El Confidencial because it considers that the audios were obtained illegally at the time.
