Real Madrid Legend Iker Casillas Hits Back at Jose Mourinho

After eight years, the feud is still very much alive

The war that was waged between Jose Mourinho and Iker Casillas is still yet to end. Most recently, Jose Mourinho reignited the flame claiming the reason why Spanish media did not appreciate the best goalkeeper in the world (speaking of De Gea) was because of a “powerful force, looking to jump back into the squad”, referencing Iker Casillas. Mourinho went on to say Iker’s most recent interview sounded like it was from a player at the end of his career.

Following yet another defeat for Manchester United this evening, this time to arch rivals Liverpool—where United barely put up a fight, Iker made quite the response on Twitter: “According to a Portuguese newspaper someone said that a player like me (37 years) is at the end of his career. Completely agree! My question is, for that newspaper: in the case of coaches, when and at what point do we see that they are no longer capable of leading or training a team?”

For Iker, Mourinho, and the fans that lived it all—the wounds have not healed and the bad blood still remains. Some ultras swear by Mourinho while many feel Iker Casillas was disgracefully pushed out of Real Madrid and painted a villain thanks to the Portuguese. The personality that is Jose Mourinho will have a tough time not retorting once again—Madrid fans brace yourselves.
