No one remains indifferent to a move to Real Madrid, whether as a player or a coach. And if some have bad memories, most never really break away from Madrid.
José Mourinho failed to win the Champions League with Real Madrid and surely that is one of the biggest regrets of his career. The Special One, however, left its mark in Madrid and he is one of those who, over time, have forgotten how difficult the Madrid context was to bear. Especially at this time.
Anyway, Mourinho still carries the White House in his heart and we know that he still has a good relationship with Florentino Perez in particular. Thursday evening, he was asked about the Champions League final and he chose his side.
“Real is a club that I carry in my heart and they have a coach who is my friend. He’s a great Real, a great Ancelotti! We’ll see if we win the final,” he said after qualifying for his squad for the Conference League final following his success against Leicester. He also made history by becoming the first coach to play in a Champions League, Europa League and Conference League final.
