Looks like Jose Mourinho had a turbulent relationship with all the players at Real Madrid. The spanish club’s goalkeeper Iker Casillas has also opened up on his whirlwind relationship with the Chelsea Manager. According to the Spaniard, the problem started at a certain Christmas period and it became worse after Casillas’ wife, Sara Carbonero a TV presenter reported a dressing room unrest on air.

“In the summer of 2012, our relationship was good, we talked a lot, but then there was a change around Christmas. The team wasn’t doing well and my relationship with Mourinho became poor. We had disagreements, but with respect.”

“Mourinho didn’t say anything to me about Sara’s words, but it was easy to notice a change in our relationship. Soon, I got injured and after two weeks, I noticed the attacks. I was called a traitor and a mole.

“I feel it was a bit unfair to call me a mole but I have to understand that and accept some people’s opinions.

It was hard to be called a mole and I like to think that neither Mourinho nor the president Florentino Perez really believed this.”

He continued, “I have the utmost respect for Mourinho but when there is one thing bothering you or one thing you don’t like, you have to discuss it. We never told Florentino that we wanted Mourinho to leave.

“He’s one of the best coaches I’ve had. A guy with character. It hurts me when my loyalty to Real Madrid is questioned – this club have given me everything.”
