The journalist girlfriend of Iker Casillas has dropped him in it with Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho - and possibly his teammates. Barely a day after it emerged that Sergio Ramos demanded from teammates that no more leaks make their way to the media, Sara Carbonero has declared on Mexican television that great rifts exist between the squad and Mourinho.

Carbonero told La Jugada: "The climate, as you all know, is not good. What is common knowledge is that the players do not agree at all with the coach. Now there is division in the locker room and we will have to see what happens at end of season because Mourinho has many battles to confront."
