Mourinho Couldn’t Handle Pressure: Calderon

share on:

Real Madrid ex-president, Ramon Calderon told BBC in a recent interview that Jose Mourinho left Real Madrid because he could not handle the pressure associated with the job.

Mourinho left Real Madrid in 2013 by mutual consent after a series of crisis in the locker room and disagreements with his players and the board had led to a very tense situation inside the Real Madrid camp. Mourinho had lead Madrid to the La liga trophy in 2012 with a record breaking 100 point haul after leading Los Blacos to the Copa Del Rey a season earlier. However, Mourinho was unable to capture the champions league as he had done at Inter and Porto, reaching the semifinals in each of his three seasons. Calderon in an interview admitted that Mourinho left things in a bad shape at Madrid and believes the pressure got to the Chelsea manager. “To be a manager of Real Madrid is really, really difficult,” Calderon told BBC World Service. “See what happened to Mourinho. He is someone who is used to coping with pressure and he couldn’t.”


Current manager Ancelotti has calmed situations down and finally captured Real Madrid’s 10th UEFA champions league title and has lead Madrid to a record equaling 10 successive wins in the UEFA champions league.

Knowing Mourinho, we expect a response within the next 48 hours.
