With Florentino Perez at the helm of Real Madrid, anybody of any quality can expect to get “sacked” from their Real Madrid contact at any time.
We use the word “sacked” loosely, as the players that have been listed in this list have been released or sold, however that is effectively the same as being sacked as the services provided are no longer required, right?
Anyway, there are six high profile players that Perez has overseen the departures of in his two spells at the helm of the Santiago Bernabeu giants and some of them are some of the biggest names to have ever played the game, let alone just for the Los Blancos.
Sergio Ramos is one of the latest superstars to have left Real Madrid, having recently announced his departure from the club after not being handed the terms he wanted. Apparently, he was ready to accept a wage cut, but he wanted two years and not the one that was on offer.
Indeed, over the 16 years he had at the club, he won pretty much everything there was, including five La Liga titles, four Champions Leagues and two Copa del Reys.
However, it is no secret that he and Perez rarely got on with Guillem Balague telling the BBC that Perez wanted the centre-back gone, so now it seems those ties are severed, for now.
Bettors can now look to place a wager on who the Spanish icon will look to join by using the quality offers found at maxfreebets.co.uk.
You must want to get yourself sacked if you want to fall out with your star player and reportedly make promises that could not be kept.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the man who leads the all-time top goalscoring charts with 450 goals in 438 appearances over 9 years, felt undervalued after not being given a deal worth around the same as Lionel Messi is being paid at FC Barcelona. However, that may have worked in Perez’s favour, as their rivals are in serious trouble.
“I felt it inside the club, especially from the president, that they no longer considered me the same way that they did in the start,” Ronaldo told France Football (per PlanetFootball) in 2018.
“In the first four or five years there I had the feeling of being ‘Cristiano Ronaldo’. Less afterwards. The president looked at me through eyes that didn’t want to say the same thing, as if I was no longer indispensable to them if you know what I mean.
“That’s what made me think about leaving. Sometimes I’d look at the news, where they were saying I was asking to leave. There was a bit of that but the truth is I always had the impression the president would not hold me back.”
Iker Casillas is synonymous with Real Madrid, having spent 25 years with the club and making over 700 appearances across all competitions.
However, he fell out of favour at the club though with other top goalkeepers having been linked with a move, yet his mother hit out and claimed it was all down to Perez.
“Iker has put up with a great deal, he has suffered psychological pressure and they treated him differently to other players,” Casillas’ mother Mari Carmen told El Mundo (per PlanetFootball) in 2015.
“I have watched him suffer for many years. It is Florentino who is pushing him out because he wanted to end his career at Real Madrid.
