Jose Mourinho mocked Iker Casillas after Chelsea eliminated Porto from the Champions League.
The Blues’ 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge ensured their place in the competition’s knockout stages at the expense of the Portuguese club, who now drop into the Europa League.
Spain legend Casillas played in goal for Porto on the night and Mourinho couldn’t resist aiming a dig at the 34-year-old.
“No problem. I’ve done my job and he has done his, and he has done well,” Mourinho told Spanish television station MEGA. “Now Casillas can win the only trophy he hasn’t won – the Europa League.”
The pair worked together at Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013 but their relationship turned sour during Mourinho’s final season at the club.
Mourinho dropped Casillas from the team in December 2012 before signing a new goalkeeper, Diego Lopez, the following January.
When asked if he had any regrets later in the season, Mourinho said: “Would I do anything differently if I had the chance to do the past three years over again? I should have brought in Diego Lopez after my first year.
“We didn’t do enough to sign him. It’s a real shame.”
Casillas has won 21 major honours during his career, including five La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues with Madrid, as well as two European Championships and a World Cup with Spain.
