The goalkeeper is fighting to reclaim his No1 spot from Diego Lopez.
Mourinho said: âIâm not very interested in the past. Iâm more interested in the present and, in this case, in the future. What I can say is that Casillas is training very well and thatâs good for him, for Real Madrid, for me, and for his teammates.â
And asked whether a player who has played 136 games with him could train poorly, the Portuguese coach was explicit: âIt depends on the opposition you have. If youâre a player who has direct, hard, daily competition and theyâre putting the pressure on you to be at the top of your form, itâs impossible for you to play a lot of games because another one would play. If you are a player without much opposition and you feel calm, protected, and untouchable, it can happen.â
