Real Madrid Fans Chant José Mourinho's Name Following El Clásico Defeat

Real Madrid Fans Chant José Mourinho's Name Following El Clásico Defeat

Real Madrid fans have made their feelings perfectly clear to current manager Santiago Solari after chanting José Mourinho's name following their defeat in El Clásico on Saturday.

Ivan Rakitić scored the winner for Barcelona in the match, leaving Los Blancos to suffer back-to-back defeats to their arch-rivals in the space of a week (the first coming in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final on Wednesday).

However, the Madrid supporters were clearly not happy with seeing their side lose for a second time at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Now, Goal correspondent Ives Galarcep posted a video of fans chanting Mourinho's name.

The Special One, who was sacked by Manchester United in December, has been linked with a return to Madrid for some time now.

In fact, former Madrid president Ramón Calderón believes that Mourinho would be the next manager for Los Blancos.

"I have the feeling, and something else, that next season Mourinho will sit on the bench of Real Madrid," he said on Twitter.

The ex-Chelsea and Inter Milan boss, who managed Madrid from 2010 to 2013, was critical of his former side's performance against Barça.

"It was not a happy performance. It was not the performance of a happy team," Mourinho explained on beIN Sports.

"It was not the performance of a team with great belief and self-esteem.

"Clearly they are now in a zone after a few bad results, especially in the cup match, where they are in a low.

"They couldn't bring to the game what I used to call the temperature of the big matches.

"They were passive. I cannot speak about a bad performance, it's not a bad performance, I think it's just a soft performance.

"Sometimes you play like this against medium teams and, in the end, you get a positive result, but against the top teams you have to do much more than this if you want to win."

El Clásico wasn't without its drama either. It was never going to be, was it?

Gareth Bale was booed off the pitch by the Madrid fans, while Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi squared up to one another in the first half.

Speaking of Ramos and Messi, Mourinho believes that the Madrid skipper knew exactly what he was doing when he elbowed the Barcelona captain.

"I think Sergio Ramos' action probably is coming from a player that knows the game has to change," he said.

"And probably he does it with the intention of creating a different temperature for the second half, because the game until then was really soft, in my opinion."

Will Mourinho be the next Madrid boss?

Let us know in the comments.
