Madrid Press: Jose Mourinho says adios


The main focus on the two front pages of the Madrid sports papers is Jose Mourinho’s goodbye to Real Madrid.

The Portuguese manager walked onto the pitch briefly to wave to the fans following his side’s 4-2 win over Osasuna at the Bernabeu. He then disappeared down the tunnel for the last time.

Marca says the manager’s goodbye summed up his season in general. He only waved at the Ultras in the south stand, choosing to ignore the rest – much like he has done with several players in the dressing room.

As says the manager has already agreed a deal with Chelsea and that it could be announced today.

Away from Mourinho’s departure, both papers also report on Gonzalo Higuain confirming he played his last game for Los Blancos and will look for a new challenge new season.

Finally, Marca says Florentino Perez is increasingly confident in is new model in which Zinedine Zidane will be given a key role and responsible for star signings.
