Mourinho sacked: Solari not anxious for Real Madrid job

Mourinho sacked: Solari not anxious for Real Madrid job

Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday, but Marcelo at Real Madrid still holds him in high regard.

The 26-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Madrid since Santiago Solari replaced Julen Lopetegui as manager in October.

Ahead of Kashima Antlers' Club World Cup semifinal against Real Madrid the coach of the Japanese side, Go Oiwa, has acknowledged the status and power of the opposition.

Although Marcelo thanked Mourinho for helping shape the left-back's career, he refused to be drawn on reports linking him with a return to the Santiago Bernabeu. Whether he returns to Madrid is not up to me. It's a shame, because he's a great coach and he's without a club.

Leonard was nothing short of brilliant for the Raptors (23-9), putting up a double-double with 29 points and 13 rebounds. From the Raptors' depth to their rough play down the stretch, here are four takeaways from the loss in Denver.

"We are focusing on the game against Kashima so I see (Isco) and everyone else working with the enthusiasm that this game deserves, that they earned (by winning the Champions League)", said Solari.

Despite his hard moment at Real Madrid, Los Blancos will demand a fee no less than €100 million (£89.9 million) for the playmaker, who famously snubbed City in 2013 for a move to Madrid.

"I have a great opinion of Mourinho as a manager but for how it concerns Inter's future we are very happy with our manager".

Isco, who has only been involved in 11 of Los Blancos' 16 La Liga games this season, has even found himself being booed by Real fans for his performances. "We are giving a lot of importance to something that does not need it; some play more and others less, players have moments". The Real Madrid boss will be able to call upon Casemiro, Sergio Reguilon, Nacho Fernandez and Mariano Diaz, all of whom have been missing from the last few matches.
