Inter Milan's Figo blasts Real Madrid president Perez

Inter Milan winger Luis Figo has had a dig at Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

This summer, Figo left Madrid, after five trophy-laden seasons at the club, to sign for Internazionale and he told Marca: "I haven't spoken to him (Perez) because I have not had the chance and neither have I wanted to. It's not as if he's called me much.

"I don't blame Luxemburgo for anything, he is there to keep his job. I know where the orders came from and who decides the starting line-ups.

"Only one person is in charge at Madrid and only one person decides everything. Everyone knows that and it's nothing new.

"I can't be 100% sure of that, because I have no proof, but that is what I am told.

"What hurt me is that he didn't tell me the truth, I understand his position, but he was not sincere and his way of acting hurt me a lot.

"He acted one way when he signed me from Barcelona and now he is acting another. He only lives for the moment and he doesn't value anything else."


wow any views on this,

well to be honest i sort of imagined that was the way perez works. i mean look at solari and samuel. samuel had one season at madrid, granted it wasnt a good one, but come on. perez has made some wierd decisions and i dont doubt figo's word one bit

i must say that something was suspicious about samuel's departure, i dont think that had anything to do with his performance on the pitch, it must be a conspircy on this one, but solari wanted to leave, and well figo too cause they both felt that they deserved more playing time, and well inter fans think solari is shit, lol
