Real Madrid coach Mourinho will axe Casillas after Adan ban served

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is ready to continue with Antonio Adan in goal once he serves his two-match suspension.Marca says Iker Casillas will be between the posts for the Copa clash with Celta Vigo and Saturday's game against Osasuna before being dropped by Mourinho for Adan.

Mourinho insists he's not treating Casillas this way out of any personal grudge, but simply that he believes the Real captain has allowed his standards to slip and needs greater competition to motivate him on the training pitch.

The Real coach also worked hard in the summer to convince Adan not to leave and feels the youngster deserves an extended chance, particularly with the Liga now gone.
