Calderon: Real Madrid tired of Mourinho. They want rid

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes Jose Mourinho is destined for PSG in the summer. Calderon launched a fresh attack on Mourinho on English radio last night.

"Real Madrid have a problem with Jose Mourinho's attitude," he told talkSPORT. "We are not used to a coach who complains about referees, UEFA and injuries. It's something I don't like. We are used to talking about what's happening on the field.

He added, "It seems he's going to leave and it looks like he's off to Paris Saint-Germain. He says he's going to stay but I don't think so. Things have gone too far and Real Madrid are not willing to accept any more of his behavior.

"Some of the players, mainly the Spanish stars, are not happy with this sort of behavior. They are not used to it. They don't like the attitude."

Calderon continued to criticize Mourinho, and blamed current president Florentino Perez for hiring the 50-year-old despite knowing what his personality was like.

"I have always said it is the president's fault. Jose Mourinho isn't cheating anyone. He hasn't changed how he is, he's always behaved like that. Wherever he's been he's acted in the same way. When Perez signed him he knew what he was getting.

"When I signed Cristiano Ronaldo I was dealing with Jorge Mendes, who is an agent for them both, and he kept talking to me about the prospect of signing Mourinho. I thought the same then as I do now, in the history of Real Madrid we've never seen a coach act like Mourinho does."
