Real 'Keeper Refutes Mou/CR7 Bust-Up

Real Madrid goalkeeper Antonio Adan has been thrust into the limelight for the first time in his career this season, after Jose Mourinho promoted him ahead of Los Blancos and Spain skipper, Iker Casillas.

And it is Adan who has been delivered to the media to refute the growing claims of a volatile bust-up between Mourinho and Real superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Wildfire reports in the Spanish media suggest that Mou and CR7 almost came to blows after Real’s Copa del Rey win over Valencia earlier this week.

Towards the end of the match the pair were seen arguing, and it has been claimed that journalists heard the fireworks continuing in the dressing room after the final whistle.

It has even been reported that other Real players were forced to intervene to stop the two Portuguese men from coming to blows.

However, Adan insists that the only blows are those sending the story out of proportion.

He claims that all is well behind the scenes at the Bernabeu.

"This confrontation did not even happen, the coach gave an opinion, the player gave his and we are all adults," Adan said, according to Soccernet.

"You can give different opinions even if they are opposed, with the player showing respect for the coach, and the coach towards the player."

Meanwhile, Adan also insists there have been no negative ramifications of his surprise promotion ahead of Casillas.

"Our relationship is very good," he said of the legendary ‘St Iker’.

"Apart from being team-mates, we are friends. He has been great with me. Casillas is the captain of Real Madrid and Spain. He brings together all the values of a footballer and a team-mate. He has helped me at all times and given me his support and trust."
