Are You F***ing Kidding Me?!

26 May

Wow. This interview just popped up on my Twitter feed and my eyebrows shot into the stratosphere.

Yeah, yeah…I know it was on goal.com but if Calderon said this stuff on the radio, I’m sure we’re going to see confirmation of it elsewhere. This is offensive on about 8 million levels. This douchebag is bang out of order. I cannot even believe he thought that this was an appropriate sentiment to express. WTF is this dude smoking?! I have so much hate roiling through me right now that I’m shaking. Hitler/Nazism is not something to casually toss out in a conversation about sports (or pretty much ANY conversation), arsehole.

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon compares Jose Mourinho to Adolf Hitler

The former Madrid chief has hit out at ‘The Special One’, comparing the former Inter and Chelsea boss’ popularity to that of the World War II figure

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has launched a scathing attack on the club’s current coach Jose Mourinho, comparing the Portuguese tactician to Adolf Hitler.

The 59-year-old, who was president of the club between 2006 and 2009 was speaking after general manager Jorge Valdano was sacked with a much-publicised row with Mourinho believed to be part of the reason behind the decision.

Madrid failed in their aim to win the La Liga and Champions League, having to settle for victory in the Copa del Rey.

Despite the inability to overtake rivals Barcelona in the league and in Europe, Mourinho is thought to still have the backing of supporters, something Calderon was keen to comment on.

“You can have millions of fans cheering for you, but Hitler was also acclaimed by millions of people before he took a tumble,” the lawyer told Catalan radio station ONA FM.

Calderon was also keen to offend current president Florentino Perez on his ability to run the club.

“I feel sorry for Madrid and Florentino. Yesterday [during the announcement that Valdano will leave Madrid] I had the sensation of seeing a student who didn’t know the lesson taking a primary exam,” he added.

“They talked so much about dysfunction that they may as well of been talking about erectile dysfunction. It reflects a pathetic picture. It was like seeing a corpse in search of a coffin.”

The former club supremo could not resist taking another dig at Perez at the end of the interview, mocking the amount of trophies the club have won with the current CEO in charge.

“We must not bury our heads into the sand. Madrid’s Florentino Perez have won the same amount of trophies as Betis, Zaragoza and Espanyol in his five years in office,” he concluded.

Calderon was replaced as president by his former vice-president Vicente Boluda in January 2009 before Perez began his second spell in charge six months later.

    Um, so does he realize he just accused Real fans of being blindly stupid in their devotion? In dissing Mourinho and Perez, he just implied that the players weren’t worth anything and we’re all delusional. A kick in the ankles is way too good for that bastard.

    Someone has a chip on his shoulder! This is so completely unacceptable. I don’t care how mad you are about being replaced in your place of “power.”
