'Florentino Perez doesn't like Argentines'

The Madrid president has been accused of selling the likes of Redondo, Cambiasso and Di Maria because of a dislike of the nation

Gonzalo Higuain’s father says Real Madrid president Florentino Perez “doesn’t like Argentines” and blames him for his son’s exit from the club in 2013.

The 27-year-old spent six years at the Bernabeu between 2007 and 2013 before leaving the club and joining Napoli for €40 million.

His departure was followed by the exit of another Argentine 12 months later, as Angel Di Maria signed for Manchester United, despite enjoying his finest season as a Madrid player.

And Higuain’s father believes the sale of the pair and a host of other players from the same country stems from Perez’s dislike of the nation.

He told Journal Z: “He does not like Argentines. So, Madrid sold players like [Fernando] Redondo, [Esteban] Cambiasso, [Santiago] Solari, [Fernando] Gago, Higuain and Di Maria.

“Florentino Perez never attacks head on, he never shows his face.”
