Mourinho Speaks Out

Even though the ‘special one’ is leaving Real Madrid, he has wished the La Liga Club happiness.

"I wish everyone associated with Real Madrid much happiness in the future," he said. "I appreciate the support of lots of fans and respect the criticism of others.

"Once again, a lot of happiness to everyone and, above all, good health. Hala Madrid!"

The Portuguese coach will leave the Bernabeu on Saturday after a colourful three-year stay in charge.

Mourinho initially won the hearts of the Madrid fans with a Copa del Rey and Primera Division win, but his third and final season has been a testing one.

Joining Madrid from Inter Milan in 2010, Mourinho secured one of the scalps of his career by wresting the title from a seemingly invincible Barcelona last season.

This campaign has been disappointing , though, with a weak title defence standing alongside a Copa del Rey final loss to city rivals Atletico and a Champions League semi-final exit to Borussia Dortmund.
