Real Madrid legend Guti blasts Mourinho for leaving

Real Madrid legend Guti has blasted Jose Mourinho for leaving.

Mourinho is packing his bags for Chelsea after Real's clash with Osasuna - which will end his first season without a trophy in 11 years.

And Guti rapped: "We expected big things of him but he's been a letdown for all Madrid fans.

"It's not the lack of trophies this season which is the problem. But when you've had your worst season, showing a bit more humility would have done us all a favour.

"I think it's fair to say he jumped ship when you have a four-year contract and then want to leave as soon as you have an average season."

Guti spent 14 years at the Bernabeu, leaving in 2010 when Mourinho arrived.

He added: "The most recent comments from Pepe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Iker Casillas give the impression that the situation had become untenable.

"So maybe Mourinho thought that leaving would be in Madrid's best interests.

"Mourinho will have success wherever he goes and probably would have achieved more if he had stayed longer."
