Bitter Real Madrid president Perez BLANKS Raul over new US role

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has blanked club legend Raul.

Sport says despite Raul living in New York and working for the LaLiga, Perez has decided not to appoint him as a club ambassador.

Instead, Real will name David Beckham as their US ambassador and Ronaldo as their South American representative.

It's claimed Perez has not forgiven Raul for turning down the role previously and is particularly upset that the former Real captain has since accepted a job with the LaLiga.

Raul was happy to help Barcelona open their new office in New York a fortnight ago.
