Santos Marquez: Florentino Perez doesn’t like black players

Florentino Perez, Real Madrid president

The agent of former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has continued his attack on club president Florentino Perez.

Santos Marquez last week said his client was forced out of the club and sold against his wishes after Los Blancos had identified David de Gea to be the new number one at the club.

Now, the agent has attacked the president again for his treatment or ex-Real players Samuel Eto’o and Claude Makelele. He stopped short of labelling Perez racist, but claimed he does not like black players.

In an interview with AS, Marques stated: “He hasn’t uttered one single truth in years. What he says is his truth, and that is the same as preaching. He kicked out the best people he has ever known.

“He thinks of himself as Madrid’s god but he only causes unrest. Those long-distance tours… it’s madness, they really take it out of the players… Before, nobody spoke out of courtesy and education and now no one speaks out because he’s made them slaves.

“For Makelele, for a lack of respect. Florentino doesn’t like black players; he’s not a racist but he doesn’t like them. I also fought with him over Eto’o. Samuel was just as much a galactico as [Luis] Figo. He left for the colour of his skin.”


  1. Paul Collins you fuckin morron how can you compare Eto with Figo! You are such a loser your a professional journalist? Haha you know nothing about soccer!
    Luis Figo is a legend and a real man on the pitch!
    Shit what a topic to write about are you getting bored?
    Get a real job asshole and dont compare more when you dont know shit, you retard!

    • Mr Bhatti. Thanks for your very eloquent feedback there. If you go back and re-read the piece, you will notice the quotes are from Santos Marquez, not me. Maybe think before you comment next time.

  2. Comment:Mr Bhatti or whatever name U ve!Do U realise that Paul collins is only reporting what Santos Marquez said and in doing that he was very careful to quote him.Bhatti do you even know who is a journalist?He only write what people has said and not his own view..Be wise other than criticizing PC.Florentino Perez should better change.

  3. Santos is a wounded lion his grievances is not only that Ike left madrid the main problem is his allowances and salary knowing full well that things will change after two years at oporto.Santos I would advice you to close your mouth like Ike’s mother did after calling oporto second B.Ike has gone and won’t come back again football is a business and Mr Perez is a good businessman.

  4. If you look at my other comments in here on Real madrid News. You can see a difference in My language! ?
    I apologise for the misunderstanding.
    I only just read this column.

    I share my profile with a friend but am going to change my password.
    Again i am deeply sorry for the harsh Words and bad language. It wont happened Again.

  5. By not knowing how the leadership and decision making process take place at Real Madrid, i reserve myself of being radical in my writing. However, i am often shocked by some critics or comments made by some of Real’s fans. Even by Mr. Calderon who was once the president of the club. If our critics or comments if we can be more suggestive or constructive, i believe the team will improve better. HALA MADRID…!!!!

  6. Comment:Santos his speech is stupid, talking without reasons black players comes and gone while the white players comes and gone, this kind of speaks nonsense. we were happy Casillas gone away left adventures for young ones.
