Casillas: Mourinho has a temper

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas spoke out in support of boss Jose Mourinho following the 1-0 defeat to Real Betis last night.

The strategist railed against fixture congestion after a result which further diminished Los Blancos already slim chances of retaining their La Liga crown.

“Mourinho has a temper and sometimes has to feel more protected by us,” Spain’s no 1 commented to journalists. “There were some questionable plays late on in the game.

“We have taken two steps back regarding the League title. It’s due to a bit of everything, from fatigue to the fact Betis were thrashed by Sevilla last week. Besides the referee has not been successful at all times.

“Yet we were not firmly planted on the field. We must stand up now and be more united than ever. Now we must play the Copa del Rey tie then against Atletico.”
