Jose Mourinho’s recent interview has got the football world talking. The Portuguese manager, often dubbed the ‘Special One’, spoke about a plethora of topics along the way, including his time at Real Madrid.

One of the topics he was quizzed about on the night was Real Madrid’s current managerial situation. Speaking about Carlo Ancelotti’s uncertain future and the long list of potential replacements rumoured, Mourinho spoke on how difficult it would be for any manager to leave Los Blancos.

“In my opinion, only a crazy person would leave Real Madrid when Real Madrid wants him. And that crazy person is me, the only one who, after three years with the president that I loved so much, decided to leave.”

Mundo Deportivo brings to the fore Real Madrid legend Guti’s recent interaction with El Chiringuito where he reasoned out why he did not like the idea of Jose Mourinho returning to Madrid, if in case it ever panned out.

“I would like to see Zidane again at Real Madrid. There were stages with Mourinho that bored me watching Real Madrid play, it’s the reality,” Guti remarked.

“Mourinho is not the right profile of coach for Real Madrid,” he added.

Guti went on to justify his preference for Zidane and called the Frenchman the ‘ideal’ manager for the men in white, saying:

“Why not a third stage for Zidane at Real Madrid? There are coaches who can spend a lot of time and spend many stages in Madrid because they are the ideals.”

On a lighter note, Guti reminisced about his playing days at the club and enjoyed a moment of humour, as he said: “I am embarrassed when I see images of me playing. Isco is the one who reminds me the most.”

‘Will have to put my feelings aside’ – Bellingham on facing Borussia Dortmund in UCL final

It has been a special debut season for Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid.

Since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €103 million, plus add-ons, last summer, the 20-year-old sensation has become an instant hit at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Despite his form declining a bit in the second half of the season, Bellingham has racked up returns of 23 goals and 12 assists from 41 games in all competitions.

A special game for Bellingham

Having won La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup, Bellingham now has the chance to end the season in the most epic ways possible by lifting the UEFA Champions League, against his former club, in his homeland.

As such, Saturday’s UCL final at Wembley, against Dortmund, is set to be a special one for the young phenom, and he acknowledged as much during an interview today.

“It’s a very special game for me but I’ll have to put feelings aside. It’s been a great season, they’ve made me feel very welcome and I’ve enjoyed playing football with them,” said Bellingham, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

When asked if he had been in touch with any of his former Dortmund teammates ahead of Saturday’s showpiece event, Bellingham replied:

“I’ve spoken to Sancho, we said we’d meet there. He took me under his wing when I came to Dortmund and that meant a lot to me.”

On how Real Madrid can win the game

Earlier today, Carlo Ancelotti was asked if he had sought any information from Bellingham to prepare a strategy to beat Borussia Dortmund.

The midfielder himself was asked by the media as to how Real Madrid can get past his former club at Wembley this weekend, to which he replied:

“To win we will have to play at our maximum level, if we are at that level it is very difficult for our opponents. The staff are sure to do a great job analysing Dortmund, I trust them 100 per cent.”

Stressing how it is a dream for him to win the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid, Bellingham remarked:

“Winning the Champions League is the reason I’m here, I always dreamed of playing for this team, and this team is linked to the Champions League. I want to be a small part of their history.”
