‘According to a Portuguese newspaper someone said that a player like me (37 years) is at the end of his career. Completely agree! My question is, for that newspaper: in the case of coaches, when and at what point do you see that they can no longer lead a team or train?’
Iker Casilas’s tweet immediately after Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United was undeniably aimed at his former boss Jose Mourinho, who infamously benched the legendary Spaniard during his stint at Real Madrid.
The World Cup winner essentially suggested Mourinho is washed up and is past his sell-buy date.
Según un diario portugués alguien dijo que un jugador como yo ( 37 años ) está al final de su carrera. Completamente de acuerdo!Mi pregunta es,para ese periódico:
En el caso de los entrenadores, cuando y en qué momento se ve que ya no están para dirigir un equipo o entrenar?

In fairness, he’s spot on. Mourinho’s United team is 19 behind Liverpool and got battered into submission yesterday.
The 3-1 victory didn’t do our dominance justice.
Mourinho can pretend he hasn’t been backed properly by the board, but £89m Paul Pogba and £52m Fred were not on the pitch yesterday and were his signings…
Not that we’re complaining as Liverpool fans, though.
We want Mourinho in charge of our rivals for as long as possible! While he’s at the helm, they’re not going to threaten Jurgen Klopp’s brilliant Reds in any way.
