Barcelona's Xavi again attacks Chelsea boss Mourinho over Casillas treatment

Barcelona midfielder Xavi has again attacked new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho over his treatment of Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas. Several Barca identities have attacked Mourinho since his departure from Real.

"I feel really bad for Iker because he doesn't deserve to be treated like that and I have seen how it has affected him. We've talked more than ever this year," Xavi told El Pais.

"It's not the fact that he hasn't played that's the problem; the worst thing is the comments. He hasn't been shown the respect he deserves.

"How can Mourinho say that his mistake was not signing a new goalkeeper two years earlier? I guess he doesn't remember, but Iker won them the Copa del Rey in Valencia with three amazing saves."
