Jose Mourinho has responded to rumours of his unhappiness at Real Madrid by writing an open letter to the club’s fans, denying earlier reports he was set to quit.
Pubslihed on Real Madrid’s official
I believe many people were surprised by the quality football showcased by Real Madrid during the preseason and it would be surprising news to them if I left the club now. Impossible!
I have a fantastic President who is very intelligent and with whom I have a great friendship. I also have a Director General who works for the club 24 hours a day, so my motivation is enormous and my Madridismo is even greater than that of some pseudo-Madridistas…
There is no way I’m leaving. No way!
I also wish to apologise to Madridistas, and only to them, for my attitude in our last game. Some people are better adapted to the hypocrisy in football than I am, and they hide their faces and speak in whispers deep inside tunnels.
I’m not learning to be a hypocrite, and I don’t want to.
Best wishes to all. We’ll see each other tomorrow at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.”
Rumours began circulating Tuesday afternoon of his representative Eladio Parames claiming that the Coach was unhappy with a perceived lack of support from the club at board level, in the wake of some heavy criticism aimed at the Coach.
This was in reaction to the Portugeuese’s actions in the Supercopa de Espana second leg clash with Barcelona, and Mourinho’s incitement towards Tito Vilanova and subsequent disparaging comments in the post-match Press conference. Real remained quiet on the issue, in reflection of club policy.
