The Spanish shot-stopper said he was held up in traffic on his way to Real’s training base and even posted a picture of the queue he was stuck in on his Facebook page.
But his excuse did not fly with Mourinho and the Portuguese coach handed the 30-year-old World Cup winner a fine for his tardiness.
“The week has started badly,” Casillas wrote on Facebook. “Madrilenos and non-Madrilenos; we have been faced with traffic jams and me, in particular, with a fine from Mourinho for arriving late to the training session. I attach the proof!!!”
Mourinho’s Real Madrid moved up into second place in the Primera DivisiÃ³n after their 3-0 win over Villarreal at the BernabÃ©u on Wednesday. Los Blancos are now a point ahead of Barcelona and one behind leaders Levante.
