MADRID: Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has described as unwarranted suggestions that he acted as a dressing room mole in an attempt to destablise coach Jose Mourinho.

“Over the past few months, without wanting it, I've been linked to a number of affairs,” the veteran Real skipper wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday.

“One day they were saying I didn't encourage my teammate Cristiano Ronaldo (it's harder to find someone who admires him more than me)..., another time I'm a mole and I leak information.

“After 13 years spent in the greatest club in the world it's quite simply unwarranted.”

Casillas was reacting after suggestions in the Spanish media that he had divulged team secrets to try and cause trouble for Mourinho with whom it was said the Real captain was involved in a power struggle.

On Facebook the Spain keeper wrote: “It was said 'Mou' and me couldn't stand each other (if there is someone I respect more than anyone it's my manager who has succeeded in getting Real Madrid back on the path to success).”
