Villarreal president Roig blasts 'selfish, selfish' Real Madrid rival Florentino Perez

Villarreal president Fernando Roig has slammed Real Madrid rival Florentino Perez over the Super League attempt.

Roig directed some stern criticism towards the Real Madrid president, as well as Atletico Madrid, for their role in the breakaway competition.

"He is selfish, selfish and even more selfish. He only thinks about Real Madrid and Villarreal are not going to save him." Roig said to A Punt about Perez.

"All of this stuff not being decided on sporting merit makes no sense."

Roig also hit out at Atletico, making his position clear that sporting merit should be valued.

"I haven't talked to anybody in the three clubs, we should have spoken but they didn't even consider it," Roig previously stated in an interviews with Radio MARCA.

"Atletico Madrid have asked for favours over the phone in the past from Villarreal, but nobody called me about this."
