The Portuguese coach has already told his inner circle that the agreement with Chelsea has been completed. His new landing place was the only thing left to be seen, because his departure had been all but a given since late last year. Continue reading Mourinho leaves for Chelsea
Following another disappointing loss in the Copa del Rey final by his team, Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho was succint and pointed in criticism of himself. While achieving a win against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup, La Real were unable to achieve any other trophies and have largely been seen as much of failure considering their budget and quality of players.
“This is the worst season of my career”, said Mourinho. Continue reading Mourinho sees this season as his worst
French club Paris Saint-Germain has rejected Real Madrid’s bid for their current boss, Carlo Ancelotti. According to PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi, the Spanish club had contacted him to speak with the coach, a request he quickly denied.
“I told them: ‘If you want to have Carlo, you need to know that he has a year left on his contract, so please respect the contract,'” he was quoted by FoxSports.com. “”He apologised and told me he had thought Ancelotti’s contract was expiring but I told him that was wrong and that Carlo has another year with us. He told me they would take that into account.”
The claim makes clear Real Madrid have realised the small chance they have to retain Mourinho, as he’s all but confirmed reports he will be heading back to his former club, Chelsea. The relationship between Mourinho and the club has soured in the past few weeks, as an embarrassing exit from the Champions League by Borussia Dortmund was followed by a public falling out with club stars Iker Casillas and Pepe.
Current Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez and Spurs coach André Villas-Boas are favorites along with Ancelotti to take the job.
Pepe continues to suffer the results of his comments overtly defensive Iker Casillas once the Valladolid game. The centre-back wasn’t referred to as up for Wednesday’s game against Málaga at the Bernabéu and José Mourinho sent him to take a seat within the stands another time nowadays, Saturday, throughout the sport against Espanyol.
It is clear that Pepe’s claims didn\’t go down in any respect well with Mourinho, WHO has branded the defender “frustrated” for being overtaken by Varane within the ladder. His social control may possibly continue in next Friday’s final against Atlético.
The Portuguese boss, 50, is eager to leave the Spanish giants.
The club square measure equally keen to ascertain the rear of their disputable coach — and square measure already longing for their next manager.
But he won’t quit and national capital won’t fireplace him as a result of neither desires to disburse.
So Mourinho should win over club president Florentino Perez to decision it equal and let him have a dream come back to Chelsea while not cash dynamic hands.
As things stand, the previous port boss is currently threatening to remain and see out the remaining 3 years of his contract.
But Chelsea insiders square measure assured it’s simply a negotiating plan of action and stay convinced he can take over from Rafa Benitez.
The extra responsibilities Zinedine Zidane will take on at Real Madrid, when Florentino Pérez decides to call on him, will be nothing new for the Frenchman. Zidane has already advised the Real president in the past – as was the case with the signing of Raphaël Varane, who was recommended by the club legend – and it seems his advice was spot on.
Zidane has also been acting as a club scout this season and is closely monitoring Gareth Bale, one of Real’s summer transfer targets. The former France international went to see the Welshman in the Europa League tie between Lyon and Tottenham. It seems Zidane is impressed by Bale and believes he would make a useful addition to the Madrid squad.
