Gerard Pique has trolled Real Madrid president Florentino Perez over leaked audio clips in which he is heard insulting a number of club legends.

Spanish outlet El Confidencial recently published several voice recordings of Perez, who was caught calling Iker Casillas and Raul "frauds", despite their success at the club. Perez was heard saying: "He's not a Real Madrid goalkeeper, what can I say? He never has been. He has been our biggest mistake. The problem is everyone loves him. He has so many people on his side. But anyway, he is one of the biggest frauds."

He was also heard calling the club's all time top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, along with Jose Mourinho, "idiots". "This guy is an idiot, a sick man. You think this guy is normal, but he's not normal, otherwise he wouldn't do all the things he does," he said of Ronaldo.

Barcelona center-back Pique took to social media to reply to several El Chiringuito posts asking why they don't have the "audio". He also replied to a tweet about Lionel Messi's new contract and said: "And when do we get the audios?"

The channel posted another tweet, mocking the fact that Messi would be taking a pay cut on his new deal, and Pique replied: "Money but you have no audio."

Further reports have claimed that the 74-year-old is now threatening to sue El Confidencial for releasing the private audio clips.
