Julio Cesar Reveals The Brutal Casillas-Related Text Mourinho Sent Him In 2013

Julio Cesar Reveals The Brutal Casillas-Related Text Mourinho Sent Him In 2013

Julio Cesar has revealed the text he received from Jose Mourinho about Iker Casillas in 2013 and it's pretty brutal stuff.

Casillas was dropped by Mourinho at the second half of the 2012/13 season, their break down in relationship leading to Diego Lopez being instated as Real Madrid's No.1.

And Cesar, who was part of Mourinho's treble-winning side at Inter Milan in 2009/10, also experienced the worst of Mourinho.

Not only did he say he was regularly "mocked" by 'the Special One' when he played under him, he claims the current Manchester United boss sent him a below-the-belt message aimed at Casillas straight after the Confederations Cup final five years ago.

Cesar's Brazil beat the reigning European and World champions Spain 3-0 in the final on home turf and the former QPR goalkeeper was named as the goalkeeper of tournament.

He swapped shirt with Casillas, his opposite number, and collected his prize wearing Casillas' jersey. That irked Mourinho.

"When I got to the dressing room, I saw a message from Mourinho on my phone," he told SporTV.

Jose Mourinho Reached Out To Iker Casillas When It Mattered Most

"Then he told me that I'd stop more shots with one arm than Casillas."

Casillas appreciated the gesture from Cesar but the soon-to-be retired 38-year old felt he needed to make him aware of what Mourinho had said about him.

"Iker went to the dressing room to talk to me and I told him to have a discussion with Mourinho, which is difficult but he had to face it," he added.

"For me, Mourinho likes to go face to face with the players who are considered stars in the teams that he coaches."

Mourinho left the Spanish capital to return Chelsea that summer, while Casillas stayed on at Real for two more years before departing for Porto.

It's unlikely that the two will ever patch things up, and from Casillas' perspective, you can see exactly why.
