Mourinho in subtle dig at Casillas after Porto's Champions League exit

The Chelsea manager has pointed out that his former goalkeeper now has the ability to win the Europa League.

JOSE MOURINHO HAS reignited his feud with Iker Casillas by highlighting the goalkeeper’s ability to now win the Europa League following Porto’s Champions League exit.

Mourinho has been accused of instigating Casillas downfall at Madrid after he dropped the Spaniard during his final season in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Mourinho’s decision to bench Casillas subsequently caused a split in the Madrid dressing room, while the Portuguese had accused one of his players of being a “rat” for leaking information on his side’s tactics to the Spanish press.

But when asked about his relationship with Casillas after Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Porto on Wednesday evening, Mourinho told Spanish television station MEGA: “No problem. I’ve done my job and he has done his, and he has done well.

Now Casillas can win the only trophy he hasn’t won. The Europa League.
