Blatter had publicly declared he thought Barcelona’s Messi was better than Ronaldo – who was at Real Madrid at the time.

And Perez flew into a rage according to the Swiss.


Blatter had said: “I told students at a conference in Oxford they were both very good but that Messi was the child dreamed of by any mother and Ronaldo more robotic.

“Cristiano was not happy and neither was the president of Real Madrid!

“Florentino was very angry!

“He said: ‘How can you say something like that when you are an honorary member of Real Madrid?’

“I told him it was a matter of personal taste for players.

“He became more enraged and told me I should immediately clarify my words.”
