Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas revealed that he has put his conflict with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho behind him after his team’s latest 2-1 victory over the Blues, according to reports from the Daily Star.
The 34-year-old had a strain relationship with Mourinho during their time at Real Madrid, with the Portuguese manager often dropping him in favour of Diego Lopez.
He left his boyhood club in the summer and has now become a regular feature for Porto since his arrival, playing in both the league as well as Europe.
In a post-match interview, Casillas revealed that he shook Mourinho’s hand before adding that he is happy to have beaten Chelsea and not because he got the better of his former boss.
”I’m not happy because I beat Mourinho, I’m happy because I won with the team,” he said.
“I greeted Mourinho. Shaking hands is the gentlemanly thing to go.
“It’s best not to live in the past, I don’t do that.”
The current English champions’ disappointing run of form looks to have continued into Europe despite winning their opener against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Ahead of their match against the Portuguese giants, Chelsea only picked up a point against Newcastle United as they now sit 14th in the Premier League with seven matches already being played.
