Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has been fined by coach José Mourinho after he turned up late for training on Monday morning.

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 División after their 3-0 win over Villarreal at the Bernabéu on Wednesday. Los Blancos are now a point ahead of Barcelona and one behind leaders Levante.
