Chelsea boss Mourinho: Casillas now must match Lopez form

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho isn't surprised seeing Diego Lopez maintain his form for Real Madrid. Lopez has been preferred in goal by Real coach Carlo Ancelotti, despite the pressure coming from Iker Casillas' supporters.

Mourinho experienced a similar atmosphere when in charge of Real and remarked: "I do not care who is in goal. Not my problem if Ancelotti does well or poorly. I didn't see Villarreal's game because I was traveling, but I'm told that Diego had a great game and I'm happy for him.

"If Casillas plays against Galatasaray, I wish for him to play the same way..."

Mourinho was speaking during a tribute to Club Deportivo Canillas.
