Ramon Calderon warns Real Madrid against Jose Mourinho

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has warned against the club returning to appoint former boss Jose Mourinho.

Calderon’s last spell as president at the club ended in January 2009, preceding current incumbent Florentino Perez’s eventual appointment in the position.

Perez was the man behind Mourinho’s appointment in 2010 from Inter, while the Portuguese coach managed the club to one La Liga crown across three seasons in charge.

“Absolutely not. I've already mentioned the amount of damage he caused here,” Calderon told ESPN when asked about a Mourinho return.

“His style of play is not what the Bernabeu wants. What the fans want is what we've just seen from Ajax; bravery, aggression with a lot of speed and boldness. Mourinho doesn't do this.

“I believe that he will be here next year as he's the only manager who the president respects and it's because he puts the dressing room in order and he demands the players to work hard.”
