‘Simples’: Mourinho claims that Diego Lopez is better than Casillas, stats back him up

Days after Pepe told Jose Mourinho to show Iker Casillas more respect, the Special One has done the exact opposite.

Mourinho’s latest bout with the Spanish media came during a press conference on Tuesday, and the current Real Madrid boss finally issued a categorical explanation for why he has been selecting Diego Lopez ahead of Spanish #1 Iker Casillas for the majority of the season.

Mourinho told reporters:

For me, I like Diego Lopez more as a keeper than Iker Casillas. It is not a personal decision, there is nothing bad between us. Simples… Pepe has a problem and his name is Raphael Varane.
