''RONALDO,PEPE AND CASILLAS REFUSED PLAYING FOR ME'' MOURINHO REVEALS RIFT WITH STAR PLAYERS AT REAL MADRID, CONFIRMS HE WILL SIGN FOR CHELSEA LATER IN THE WEEK
Jose Mourinho, who until Saturday was the manager of Spanish La Liga giant, Real Madrid, has confirmed that he had a rift with some players in the team while also confirming that he will take over as coach of Chelsea this week.
He left the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday night without saying goodbye to star players Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Iker Casillas, having suggested all three had deliberately ruled themselves out of his last game in charge.
Mourinho had left as many as 10 first-team players out of his final squad for Saturday’s visit of Osasuna, but claimed that, while many were injured and had been ruled out by the club’s medical staff, Ronaldo, Casillas and Pepe had all taken it upon themselves to miss the last game.
