Casillas Opens About Fall Out With Mourinho

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas has opened up about his fall out with former manger Jose Mourinho towards the end of his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
 
 
Mourinho's icy relationship with the Spanish shot-stopper was well documented, with some reports claiming the fall-out start after Casillas contacted FC Barcelona star Xavi to patch things up for the sake of the national side.
 
Both Mourinho and Casillas ended up leaving Los Blancos, and the World Cup winner reveals he'd hope to have handled it differently.
 
“Jose Mourinho? His arrival was to allow us to compete with Barcelona and that led to ??moments of great tension, that Madridismo began to be formed that I do not like," Mourinho was quoted as saying by FootballEspana.
 
“The third year of ours was not all good although La Liga was won and it seems that this was to counteract Barcelona.
 
“The way the relationship went was not good for me, for Mourinho, for Real Madrid…I would probably take the bull by the horns if it happened again, and not stay quiet.
 
“I did that at the time to honour the values of the club, of Madrid, but the truth is that we have all kept quiet on it and that is the best way to move on.
