Coentrao Wants To Quit Madrid

What is it about Real Madrid’s whingeing Portuguese employees?

First it was Cristiano Ronaldo who said he was “sad”. Then Jose Mourinho started inching his way towards the Bernabeu exit by saying he’d rather be somewhere he felt “loved.”

Now Fabio Coentrao is the latest Portuguese to feel emotionally burdened at Real Madrid.

The wing-back says that he has never felt “wanted” in the Spanish capital, and he too is angling for an exit.

Of course, he has immediately been linked to Chelsea, where Mourinho is expected to return, and where The Special One has previously taken his compatriots and defenders, Paolo Ferreira and Jose Bosingwa.

"From the first day I do not think I was wanted here,” 25-year-old Portuguese international Coentrao whimpered to Ojogo in his homeland.

"Today it seems that everyone wants me to leave the club. I do not know what I have done wrong.

"We must find a solution that is good for both the club and myself, so that no one will lose out."

Asked if he fancies following Mourinho on his expected path to Stamford Bridge, Coentrao managed to stem his tears long enough to say: "If I leave Real Madrid, I do not close the door to anyone.”
