Mourinho hurt Madrid, says Calderon

REAL MADRID president Ramon Calderon has cast the future of the club’s manager Jose Mourinho into doubt after branding his conduct during the mini series against Barcelona “harmful”.

Mourinho, who last month admitted he craves a return to the Premier League at some point in the near future, was suspended from last night’s 1-1 draw at Camp Nou which saw his side eliminated from the Champions League.

Mourinho was sent off in the first leg for ironically applauding the decision to award Pepe a red card and added to the ill feeling between the two clubs when he claimed governing body Uefa regularly bestow preferential treatment on Barca.

“I think what he did in terms of talking about Uefa and referees is not acceptable at all. It doesn’t match with Real Madrid’s history,” Calderon said.

“I assume that he’s a very, very good manager, but talking like that has been harmful for Real Madrid.

“He said he’s going to [continue] in his position next year, but you never know.”
