Jose Mourinho reportedly already has a replacement in mind for Alberto Toril as Real Madrid Castilla Coach.
The Portuguese, in facing criticism for his reluctance to incorporate youth players into Real’s first-team plans despite an injury crisis in defence, last week turned the argument towards Castilla Coach Toril.
With Mourinho accusing the 39-year-old of focusing more on his own ambitions as a Coach than on assisting him in developing talent for the senior side, focus has shifted to the apparent ‘non-existent’ relationship the duo have at the club.
Whilst Toril recently signed a contract with the club until June 2015, AS believe that Mourinho already has his preferred replacement in mind, should the tactician be sacked or resign.
Luis Campos joined Mourinho’s backroom staff during the summer but apparently has an as-yet-undefined role at the club, currently seen to be only scouting players of interest for his fellow Portuguese Mourinho.
However, it is thought that this is because Campos, who has coaching experience of over 20 years, has been identified as the ideal man to take Toril’s position at Castilla.
Yesterday’s Press conference saw Mourinho specifically deny the intention of ‘ordering’ Toril’s departure from the club, but still maintain that Toril’s way of working does not fit in with his own.
