Former Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has taken a swipe at Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho after the defeat against Liverpool on Sunday at the Anfield.
Mourinho has previously told Portuguese media outlet that Casillas was over the hill at 37-years-old and Casillas is keen to know when a coach should stop coaching a team, hinting that Mourinho’s record at United was poor.
Mourinho spoke a few weeks ago with ‘Record’. “This interview is typical of someone who is at the end of his career”, he said about an interview by Casillas with Jorge Valdano.
The legendary goalkeeper infamously fell out with Mourinho at Real Madrid and he took to Twitter after Liverpool’s 3-1 victory to fire some shots at his former boss.
Casillas wrote: “According to a Portuguese newspaper, someone said that a player like me (37 years old) is at the end of his career. Completely agree! My question is, for that newspaper: In the case of coaches, when and at what moment do you see that they are no longer there to lead a team or train?”.
The tweet has since gone viral, picking up almost 55.000 likes and 20.000 RT’s at the time of writing. Don’t get on the wrong side of Iker Casillas, folks.
Mourinho has fell out with a number of players during spells at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Manchester United, but his feud with Casillas might rank as number one. So what exactly happened between the pair? Casillas contacted Barcelona captain Xavi to put an end to their hostilities following a clash at the Clasico for the sake of the national team. What a clear punch by Iker!
