Even before the season starts, the drama has began in Madrid as this morning the club announce the sacking of their Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho
It was at the end of May that the supremos at Real spotted Jose Mourinho as the perfect replacement for Pellegrini and the man to break the jinx that has seen the club unable to scale through the knockout stage of the champion's league for the past six seasons. When Mourinho arrive at Madrid, there were mixed reaction from fans, analysts and even the supremos at Real.There were fears of compromising Real's style of play to Mourinho's pragmatic way of coaching(winning by all means). But the general feeling was that; if Mourinho is at the helm, surely winning a title is a possibility
Since then so many things had happen to suggest that the relationship between Mourinho and Perez was never going to be a sweet or lasting one as it happen this morning with the sacking of Mourinho. Earlier in the month, it was reported that Mourinho had drawn a list of players he want to join the club which include; Maicon, Essien, Muntari, Lampard, Drogba and Cambiassio. But the club have their own choice. The relationship got sour this week when Mourinho bold up to draw up a list of players he want to leave the club the include; kaka, Ronaldo, Ramos, Alonso, Granero, and Higuain. He even went on to say that 'they either leave or I leave'
In the end he had to leave because the president Florentino Perez had said 'selling Kaka and Ronaldo is like going to the market to sell my parents. You either work with them or you go to hell'
Shortly after the news broke out, sources close to Mourinho indicates that bids have started coming from Manchester city and Valencia. It will be interesting to see where Mourinho will be working this season, maybe Valencia so as to prove to Madrid that he really is the special one.
