Real Madrid directors urge Florentino to push Mourinho out exit door

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is being urged to push Jose Mourinho out the exit door at the end of the season. El Confidencial says Real directors fear for the future of the club should Mourinho stay on for another season.

The differences between the senior players group and Mourinho is now growing and Real directors have major concerns over the coach's approach.

"If he demanded the head of (sports director Jorge) Valdano last season, who will he want this time? Iker (Casillas)? (Sergio) Ramos?" said one director.

Florentino has launched his own investigation from senior players and managers - and has been left with no doubt that Mourinho is losing the confidence of the squad.

The players have assured Florentino they will keep giving their all for Real - and could still finish the season with the Liga title and Champions League - but their loyalty to Mourinho is now gone.
