Jose Mourinho: Iker Casillas confronted me silently

Jose Mourinho has hit back at Iker Casillas comments about their relationship: “It is normal for someone to say this at the end of their career.”

On Thursday, the former Real Madrid goalkeeper told Spanish TV that he should have confronted Mourinho when he was boss of the club but the Portuguese has a different version of events.

“It is normal for someone to say this at the end of their career,” Mourinho has said, as reported by Diario AS.

“He said that he never confronted me, but that is simply not true – he did confront me and in a way that he does best, secretly.”

Now 37, Casillas left Los Blancos in 2015 to join Porto following a reported fallout with the club’s hierarchy while Mourinho left two years prior.
