Real Madrid president Florentino: Platini a friend
Platini has constantly criticised Real's transfer spending for this season and was brought to book by director Emilio Butragueno at the Champions League group draw.
But Perez said yesterday: "The Platini thing comes from when he was asked if we had spent a lot of money and his reply was 'yes'. But he has never criticised Real Madrid.
"I can say publicly he is our friend."
