Mourinho says farewell

Jose Mourinho has posted a message wishing Real Madrid the best for the future, as he prepares to bow out as Coach.

The 50-year-old has spent three years at the Santiago Bernabeu, winning the Copa del Rey in his first season and last year La Liga with a record points tally and number of goals scored.

However, on from a trophyless 2012-13, hit with continued reports of disharmony in the dressing room, Mourinho has agreed to leave the club at the end of the season by mutual consent.

Ahead of that departure, which will come after Saturday evening’s home League match with Osasuna, the Portuguese posted a message on Madrid’s official website.

“I wish everyone associated with Real Madrid much happiness in the future,” stated Mourinho.

“I appreciate the support of lots of fans and respect the criticism of others.

“Once again, a lot of happiness to everyone and, above all, good health. Hala Madrid!”
