Former Real Boss Hits Back At Mourinho

Jose Mourinho couldn’t handle the pressure as Real Madrid manager, according to ex-club president Ramon Calderon.

Mourinho managed Los Blancos from 2010-2013 and won two trophies during his time, one being La Liga and the other the Copa Del Rey.

The Portuguese left Real with a big a cloud hanging over his head and there was lots of speculation whether he left on his own terms or whether he was asked to leave.

Calderon believed that the pressure started getting to Mourinho and that’s why the club starting seeing a decline in form.

"To be a manager of Real Madrid is really, really difficult," Calderon told BBC World Service.

"See what happened to Mourinho, He is someone who is used to coping with pressure and he couldn't."

Calderon had no hesitation pointing out that Mourinho was the problem the club and admitted that he was the reason why the club was left in a mess when Ancelotti was appointed.

"When Mourinho left, things were in a really bad situation," said Calderon, who was president from 2006-2009.

"He had to leave the club after three years of a lot of problems, a lot of confrontations."

Real lost in the semi-finals of the Champions League in each of their three seasons under Mourinho and that ultimately cost him his job.
