Iker Casillas is fed up by all the controversy between himself and Jose Mourinho.
The pair spent three years together in Madrid when the Portuguese manager was in charge at Real, but in the last season their relationship fell down and misunderstandings between the goalkeeper – also the captain and legend at the Blancos – and the coach at the end led to a fracture between Mourinho and the players.
Three years went by and the pair faced each other in the Champions League group: Casillas won the battle in Porto where the Dragoes won the game, but Mourinho won the “war” by winning the last game, topping the group table and sending his ex team and the Spanish goalkeeper out of the Champions League.
Casillas was asked about the controversy between Mourinho and him after the game, and let understand that he’s tired of this issue:
“If I’m tired of the Mourinho-gate? Yes, I’ve had enough of it. I understand how fans are still interested, but it’s time to end that discussion. He’s got his career and I’ve got mine.
“We have different things to worry about, I’m not here to compete against him and he won’t be happy when he faces me, so I will worry about what’s best for me and my team, rather than worrying about what happens with the rest of the world.
About the Champions League elimination he added:
“We would’ve loved to be included in the Champions League draw, but we couldn’t make it. We have to make the best out of every situation, and the Europa League will be a big challenge for us. There will be a number of prestigious teams included in that draw, and we just hope we can make it to the final game and win it.”
