President Perez described the former captain as “like a son” and said of Zidane, “I battled for him to stay, I didn’t read his letter, I don’t believe he wrote it.”


Real Madrid has lost two of their most significant players in less than a month: Zinedine Zidane and Sergio Ramos. Both men’s departures were marked by disagreements, with Florentino Pérez in the center, for various reasons. In an interview with Onda Cero’s El Transistor, the president praised both Zidane and Ramos and left the door open for them to return in the future, as well as offering his version of events in both cases.

Ramos said in his farewell press conference that he had a club offer on the table, but when he accepted it, he was told it had expired. Florentino, keen to avoid a squabble with the former captain, said that the player had been informed about every facet of the deal from the beginning. “I have a lot of respect for Sergio and will not go into detail. He is a legend at Real Madrid. Everything that needed to be said about the subject has been spoken. I’m not going to share my view on the issue. We offered him a new contract and informed him that a deadline was approaching, but he declined. He mistook it for something else “he stated In both circumstances, a detailed account of what occurred is required.

Florentino Perez continues:

“I was irritated by it. Sergio is someone I adore as if he were my own child. In 2005, I introduced him to the club. So it came as no surprise that I was sad to see him go. What about the press conference? I’ve never been to one before “Regarding Ramos’ goodbye, Perez added. “This is his home, so he’ll come back. I’ve experienced similar experiences with other players. I adore him and wish him nothing but the best. I’m not going to get into a debate about who was correct and who was incorrect. There are no negative emotions “

“I didn’t read Zidane’s letter,” Florentino Perez says.
After announcing his resignation as coach of Real Madrid, Zidane wrote a letter to AS that was published (and afterward shared on social media) and raised doubts about his relationship with the president in recent months. Florentino, on the other hand, does not believe Zidane authored the letter. “I swear I haven’t read it. It was said to be terrible. It was not written by him. Zidane isn’t like that. It would have been written by someone else. What is the state of my relationship with him? I like him just as much as I’ve always liked him. He is a Real Madrid icon, to say the least ” he stated.

He went on to say of the coach’s choice to quit, ” “I wasn’t surprised in the least. It was always an option. I’m familiar with him. It’s been a long and difficult year, and you’re tired of being a coach. I fought hard to convince him to stay. I spent the entire evening trying to persuade him. Likewise, José ngel Sánchez. Zidane is an honest man who meant it when he declared he wanted to go.

“I spent the entire evening talking to him, and he never said anything about the letter. It’s been a very trying season. Since then, I haven’t spoken to him. I’m not sure if he’s in Madrid. I still think highly of him, as I always have.

He’d be back coaching Real Madrid if it were up to me. Perez continued, “I know he wants to coach France one day.”

The president also had a few words for the media, which he claimed had worn Zizou down. “A coach who gives four press conferences every week becomes weary.” Even I didn’t comprehend some of the questions. Most people treated Zidane well, and some members of the press but others didn’t. It’s only reasonable to feel exhausted if you’re asked the same question eight times in a news conference.”
