Calderon: Perez did not want Ronaldo

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has claimed that his successor Florentino Perez did not want Cristiano Ronaldo to sign for the club and even tried to put a stop to it.

• Rigg: Real eye move for Aguero

Ronaldo, 28, joined Madrid from Manchester United in a world record €80 million deal in 2009, with his stock having only risen further during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, according to Calderon, if Perez had had his way then the move would never have happened.

"Florentino Perez wanted to stop the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo," Calderon said on TeleB. "When he became president he found that Cristiano was already signed, and I know that he wanted to stop it, but [Jorge] Valdano and Jose Angel Sanchez convinced him not to. They said he was mad. He did not look kindly on it and Ronaldo knows this. That may be the source of their problems."

The Portugal international said earlier in the season that he was "sad" for "professional" reasons, leading to speculation that he was set for an exit from Madrid.

And Calderon believes that Perez's indifference to Ronaldo could have played a part in the player reportedly wanting to leave the club.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is in a difficult situation," he said. "This president has not had very positive reactions to those players that he has not signed. This was demonstrated with Robben, Sneijder, Higuain, and the same thing is happening with Ronaldo. I would love Cristiano to continue at Madrid. Yet experience shows that if a player does not want to stay. He must leave and be where he wants to be. Slavery has long been abolished."

Calderon also took time to hit out at Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, following his recent claim that the FIFA Coach of the Year award was rigged.

"He is boring. He requires leadership and he misses the point more often than he should," Calderon said. "To behave according to the greatness of Madrid, you have to be a part of its history, like Del Bosque. Del Bosque will be a part of this history, but the other one won't be.

"Florentino is guilty of allowing Mourinho's actions. Everyone knew what Mourinho was. He behaved badly at Inter, Chelsea…in Madrid it would not be different. Florentino already knew what we would be exposed to. He was in a desperate situation."
