Madrid press: Mourinho breaks the truce

Madrid press: Mourinho breaks the truce

Marca As front pages

Spanish sports newspapers bring to their front pages the controversial press conference offered by Mourinho, who insisted on “closing the door to his players”, Marca says.

Mourinho attacked Casillas and Pepe by saying that Diego Lopez is better than La Roja’s goalkeeper and that the defender was frustrated because a 19-year-old –Raphael Varane– had run over him this season.

AS also fills its front page with Mourinho’s controversial declarations, highlighting his criticism of Iniesta –who had also criticised the manager’s attitude in the last few days. “Iniesta should worry about the fact that when Messi is out his team does what they did against Bayern Munich”, he said.

Marca’s television channel, Marca TV, gave the exclusive last night that the club is planning to take disciplinary measures against Pepe for saying that his boss’ criticism of  Casillas “was not entirely appropriate”.

Albiol to Atletico?

Marca also claims that centre back Raul Albiol could sign for Atletico de Madrid this summer, as Real Madrid is planning on reinforcing its defence with younger players, such as Iñigo Martinez.

Both papers refer to tonight’s La Liga game between Real and Malaga in a small space in their front pages. Marca highlights the fact that Madrid not winning would give Barcelona the title, while AS says that Ronaldo could score his 200th goal for Los Blancos.
