SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: REAL MADRID | THE BENITEZ - PEREZ CONVERSATIONS

REAL MADRID | THE BENITEZ - PEREZ CONVERSATIONS

English paper "Daily Mail" published today supposed conversations between Real Madrid President Florentino Perez & ex-Coach Rafa Benitez. One of the published quotes is a real beauty & I have no option but to post here; Florentino Perez to Rafa Benitez:

"Do you know how many shirts James sells? Kovacic does not sell us a single shirt"

Rafa Benitez-Real Madrid -James

This apparently was said during the period when James Rodriguez was sitting more on the bench than playing on the field. The English paper article strengthens what many Football insiders already suspect (or know), that President Florentino Perez is an interventionist. 

One of the reasons Carlo Ancelotti was let go was that President Perez believed that he was too soft, that the players had gotten the upper-hand over their Coach.   

These "little" filtrations from "insiders" give an insight to the inner workings of the World Biggest Football Club, & how the economic factors sit alongside ( or above) the Sporting issue.

Difficult place for a coach to do his work.
