Casillas plays down Mourinho talk
03 May 2010 - 12:18:48
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has reacted angrily to media reports that suggest Jose Mourinho will take charge of the team in the summer.
Current boss Manuel Pellegrini is widely tipped to be dismissed at the end of the current campaign with the former Chelsea coach being lined up.
However, Casillas believes it is disrespectful that such assumptions are being made with the La Liga title race still in the balance.
Speaking to reporters, he said: "The name Mourinho is on everyone's lips because Inter are playing Bayern in the Champions League final and I think it would be a mistake to think he will be our coach next season.
"To talk about Mourinho is out of order and I am not contemplating him coming here. It is too easy to think that he should be Madrid coach because he has beaten Barca.
"Whatever has just happened is the hot topic and it just so happens that Inter eliminated Barcelona but a lot can happen."
