Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to quit his post as Real Madrid boss due to what he believes is a lack of support from the club’s board in relation to a number of issues relating to the running of the club as well as the club’s refusal to allow him to bring in a striker in both last summer’s and this month’s transfer window, according to Spanish publication AS.
The ‘Special One’ has apparently had several run ins with general director Jorge Valdano, the most recent of which followed Valdano’s reference to French international Karim Benzema being left on the bench during the poor display away at bottom of the table Almeria.
Last summer the Real Madrid boss had been hoping for funds to bring in Athletic Bilbao’s giant striker Fernando Llorente but the Bernabeu board refused to finance the move which in turn left Mourinho with fewer attacking options than he had hoped for, an issue that was then further compounded by the herniated disc problems that have left the La Liga giants without their number one striker Gonzalo Higuain.
Add to this the issue of the long running contract dispute between the club and Portuguese defender Pepe, an issue that Jose Mourinho wanted resolved some time ago but again he has been angered by the club’s decision to hold off on agreeing any deal until the summer.
This news may well result in a wealth of speculation as to where Mourinho may be heading but until he does indeed decide to walk out, as AS predicts, it would be better to hold off on any second guessing.
