Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas fined by José Mourinho
Iker Casillas is fined by Real Madrid coach after he showed up late for training on Monday
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 DivisiÃ³n 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.
