Iker Casillas Has Completely Finished Jose Mourinho With Brutally Honest Twitter Post

Iker Casillas and Jose Mourinho's relationship is far from fine and dandy.

The pair infamously feuded during their time at the Bernabeu, and it led many to believe that the Spanish goalkeeper left Los Blancos after 17 years at the club because of their differences.

The 55-year-old went on to replace Casillas at Madrid, and well-documented tension followed.

In years gone by cheeky digs have been made at one another, but a recent and brutally honest development between the pair has once again ignited the feud.

Following Manchester United's disappointing 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday night, Casillas responded to a sly comment from Mourinho that suggested he was at the end of his career at aged 37.

"According to a Portuguese newspaper someone said that a player like me (37 years) is at the end of his career. Completely agree.

"My question is, for that newspaper: in the case of coaches, when and at what point do you see that they are no longer to lead a team or train?"

The tweet has since gone viral, picking up almost 55,000 likes and 20,000 RT's at the time of writing. Don't get on the wrong side of Iker Casillas, folks.

Mourinho has fell out with a number of players during spells at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Manchester United, but his feud with Casillas might rank as number one.

So what exactly happened between the pair? Casillas contacted Barcelona captain Xavi to put an end to their hostilities following a clash at the Clasico for the sake of the national team.

'Mourinho saw him as a grass, a mole, a traitor and an egoist,' Diego Torres wrote in his biography, The Special One.

Casillas was eventually replaced by Diego Lopez by Mourinho as the number one and would eventually leave the Bernabeu under Carlo Ancelotti saying, "This was an inheritance from the previous era," as he left.

Pepe went on to tell the press that Casillas deserved more respect, whilst Ramos also fell out with Jose for saying the club's 'dirty laundry' shouldn't be aired in public and he got dropped for a Champions League game.

The pair went to Florentino Perez and said, "Presi, in June, either Mourinho leaves, or we will..."

Mourinho eventually said his goodbyes, but the feud between his former goalkeeper lives on as he struggles at Old Trafford.
