Casillas accepts early club return

Goalkeeper Iker Casillas has dismissed suggestions that Real Madrid's World Cup stars are on collision course with new coach Jose Mourinho. New Bernabeu boss Mourinho has told the Real players involved in Spain's World Cup success in South Africa they must report back for pre-season training a week ahead of their previous schedule on August 2. However, Casillas insists there are no problems between the likes of himself, Sergio Ramos, Xabi Alonso, Raul Albiol, Alvaro Arbeloa and their new club coach. "That's fine," he said when asked about the early return. "I have spoken to him a couple of times and I like his way of thinking. "He wants the players to come back rested and ready to work. Being world champions makes you forget about everything."
