Real Madrid Captain Iker Casillas: Jose Mourinho Is Nothing Like What He\'s Portrayed As In The Press
The Real Madrid soccer team is currently in Los Angeles where they are holding their pre-season training.

Euro 2012 Champions along with Soccer god Cristiano Ronaldo will be facing former Real Madrid player David Beckham and his current team, La Galaxy on Thursday August 2nd.

Real Madrid’s team Captain, Iker Casillas held a press conference after training at UCLA where he talked about his goals for the new season. “We want to go one step further, as we have done over the last two seasons since Mourinho arrived. We want to strengthen the team and we have more responsibility, more experience and we want to win all the titles: the Spanish Super Cup, which is the first title up for grabs, defend the Spanish league title, the Spanish Cup and we want and hope to win the Champions League having not won it these past years."

In regards to his coach Jose Mourinho, who begins his third season at the club, the Captain said: “Until you meet him you don’t realize that he is nothing like what you read about him in the press. He is a committed manager and has got the best from every single player. The club was clearly right to hire him. He has a goal in mind and he feels at home here. We hope that lasts a long time.”

Hollyscoop’s Diana Madison was on hand and asked Casillas what inspires him to keep winning titles. He humbly said: “When you win titles you think less about you and more about the people. I’ve been fortunate to win many titles with my club and country. Making those people happy makes it worthwhile. It is worthwhile having that ambition every year and the day I wake up without that drive I shouldn’t be here.”
