'Jose Mourinho to quit as Real Madrid manager in June'

Jose Mourinho heads into El Clasico with Barcelona facing mounting criticism from both Real Madrid’s supporters and players, and amid claims his spell as Real Madrid manager will not last beyond the summer.



Mourinho’s team are five points clear of Barcelona at the top of the Spanish league, but his position has been undermined by publication of a training-ground argument between the manager and two of his senior players, defender Sergio Ramos and goalkeeper Iker Casillas.


The exchange was carried in full by Madrid-based newspaper Marca, which usually serves a cheerleader for the club. Mourinho has not questioned the accuracy of the report, which portrayed him as tetchy and even paranoid.


Towards the end of Sunday’s 4-1 win over Athletic Bilbao, some Madrid fans chanted Mourinho’s name, as if to indicate their continued support for him despite the report. However, a larger section of the Bernabéu crowd responded by whistling, sending a clear signal that they are unhappy with the former Chelsea manager.


After the game, a leading Spanish journalist, Siro López of AS, told television viewers Mourinho had decided to leave Madrid at the end of the season. López said his source was one of Mourinho’s closest allies.


The training-ground exchange occurred after Madrid’s 2-1 defeat at home by Barcelona in the Spanish Cup, after which Mourinho was widely criticised for his side’s negative tactics. They go to the Nou Camp needing to win the second leg.


Mourinho claimed Ramos had given a disloyal interview to journalists immediately after the first leg. “You [guys] killed me [with your quotes] in the mixed zone,” Mourinho is reported to have said.

According to Marca, Mourinho then claimed that the media gives Spanish internationals such as Ramos and Casillas preferential treatment, while Mourinho has to defend his team from the sternest criticism.

“As you Spanish are world champions, your friends in the press protect you ... like the goalkeeper,” he said. Casillas overheard and shouted: “Boss, here we say things to our faces.”

Mourinho then became embroiled in an exchange with Ramos over the failure to mark Carlos Puyol for one of Barcelona’s goals.

Ramos had the final word with a devastating reference to Mourinho’s modest playing career.

“Depending on the match situation, sometimes it’s necessary to change the marking,” he said. “And as you have never been a [professional] player, you wouldn’t know that this is sometimes necessary.”

Ramos, though, denied that the exchange revealed divisions within the squad. “Whoever says the changing room is divided or that some kind of fracture exists is lying,” he tweeted yesterday. “This is a great group that is well united, regardless what is said.”

Mourinho has also been criticised for the behaviour of Portuguese defender Pepe, who provoked outrage in Spain by feigning injury during the game against Barcelona before appearing to stamp on Lionel Messi's hand without sanction. The Spanish ruling body said yesterday that it will take no action against Pepe after studying the incident. The player insisted it was accidental.

Publicly, Mourinho insisted that he would win over the fans who barracked him.

“I’m not bothered by the whistles at me,’ he said after the win over Bilbao. “It’s not a problem.

“It’s the first time it’s ever happened to me. There’s a first time for practically everything.

“[Zinedine] Zidane was whistled at here. Ronaldo has been *whistled at here. Cristiano [Ronaldo], who is the latest Golden Boot winner, has also been whistled at. Why can’t I?

“Zidane responded with his football, the same as Ronaldo and Cristiano.

“I work hard to be able to respond like they did some day, but there may come a day when the fans are sad.”

What was said in the Bernebeiu dressing room

JOSE MOURINHO: You [plural] killed me in the mixed zone.

SERGIO RAMOS: No, mister, you only read what it says in the papers, not everything we said.

JM: Sure, because you Spaniards have been world champions and your friends in the media protect you and because the goalkeeper...

IKER CASILLAS: Eh, Señor, round here you say things to our faces.

JM: Where were you on the first goal [against Barcelona], Sergio?

SR: Marking Piqué.

JM: Well, you should have been marking Puyol.

SR: Yes, but they were blocking us off with Piqué and we decided to change the marking.

JM: What? So now you’re playing at being coach?

SR: No, but depending on the situation in the game, sometimes you have to change the marking. Because you’ve never been a player, you don’t know that sometimes happens.

They said this last year and he's still there. Having said that, it's clear he's making more and more enemies the longer he stays there (shock). I'd love to see him leave with his tail between his legs.

To be honest I doubt he will ever stay in a job more than 3 years and in some regards it will serve his reputation well. His style wears people down and along with generating enemies it is bound to make long periods in the same place difficult for him. If he wins the league of CL then I think he will definitely jump shit.

As always he'll make it win win, he gets a trophy or two or blames the players/president.

He wont have to worry about quitting if he fucks up the position Real are in in the league though.

I dont think Man Utd will touch him myself.

He's always wanted to win the three major leagues. Even Perez has succumbed to him.

It'd be pathetic on Chelsea's part to get rid of Villas Boas anyway. You can see by his signings and the set-up how he wants to play.

Arsenal would be a no no unless he's guaranteed funds, something which is a bit of grey area as Wenger doesn't let anyone know about if transfer funds are available.

Man Utd is too early. Could see Pep Guardiola getting that one.

Could see Man City looking at him before he heads back to Malaga to get La Liga.

Ramos v Mourihno: Who do you want to win in a fight.

That should be used as a torture technique. Having to side with either of the horrible little pricks makes me feel ill.

I dont think he is a person who builds team spirit in the truest sense of the word - like Shankly or Kenny - with the team members really liking each other, becoming mates and truly believing in working for the cause of the club. His teams are united and to a certain extent fight for each other, no doubt. However, I think he builds that based on paranoia, the world is attacking you. He magnifies all opponents faults to his players and pretty much tells them to stick with each other to get out of this hole. Such an environment wears people out. I dont think he can maintain that intensity of poisonous atmosphere for long. I also think that is one main reason why the team spirit and performances collapse once he leaves. Because it was artificial and never there.

Agreed, he makes it a war basically. He's amazing at getting inside peoples heads, brainwashing them even, got to give him that.

He's a cunt of a man and I despise his managerial style even if it is winning often. Think he'll go at the end, either winning something and boasting about how amazing he is or no trophies and blames the players, Marca etc. Win, win for him.

Taking that Inter job when Rafa did was brave/silly really, they'd just won everything and there was a World Cup after it. They were spent.

I don't think it'll ever happen, but let's just say FSG decide they want him to be our next manager and appointed him. Everyone here who hates him...how would you feel?

Maureen [love that ] is only in it for himself, and would leave any team as soon as it suited him. he isnt arsed about building a dynasty, and leaving a legacy, so no continuity. this is what i believe [hope] that Kenny is trying to restore at Anfield.
