The Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has said that the fans should consider the fact that José Mourinho has been one of the highly successful Real Madrid managers in recent times before criticising him locally.
The Portuguese manager received a barrage of criticism after his team fell 11 points behind Barcelona in the table following the 1-0 defeat against Real Beltis. This defeat away from home was translated into the recent home match against Alcoyano. Even though the club managed to win the match 3-0 and 7-1 on aggregate, a number of Real Madrid supporters whistled José Mourinho during this match.
Iker Casillas, though, has said that this explains that the memory of the fans is extremely short because considering that they were chanting his name only a few months ago after Real Madrid had won the league title for the first time in four years. Casillas has pointed out to the victories achieved by the time in the King’s cup, Super cup and the league title during the period of José Mourinho. He has said that the team is more hungry than other to win titles. Even before the start of the season, Mourinho made it clear that winning the 10th Champions League title for Real Madrid is his ambition this season.
Now, he can concentrate on it completely because the prospect of winning the league title is all but over, as they are 11 points behind Barcelona in the table. “I think a couple of months ago the people that were whistling yesterday were the people who were clapping and cheering when we won the league. Memories are short in football and maybe people do not remember who led the team to win the record breaking league title: most goals, most points,” said Iker Casillas in a recent interview.
