Ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti better than Jose Mourinho, says Iker Casillas
Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is “better” than current Blues manager Jose Mourinho, according to Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
The Spanish stopper has been managed by both coaches and admits he prefers the Italian over the controversial Portuguese.
Mourinho dropped Casillas and had a series of bust-ups with him during his time at Real, souring their relationship.
“Ancelotti is better than Mourinho,” Casillas said. “With Mourinho I had a love-hate relationship.
“In his time here I did not speak of him when he was in my locker room, nor do I think that I have to talk now when he is already managing another team and I’m with my team.
“It would be a bit self-seeking and little cowardly on my part. [I wish] that things go very well for him. In the time that he was at Real Madrid, he won titles and you have to give him thanks.”
Casillas also claimed he would not sign Lionel Messi if he had the chance to. “I would not sign him. We are very good with those of us here and accomplishing great things,” he said.
