Jose Mourinho has no fears over being fired by Real Madrid, and has also defended his decision to leave Iker Casillas out of the Real Madrid team last night.

Casillas was dropped for the first time in 10 years, and the club captain was missed as Malaga won 3-2, but Mourinho insisted he chose Antonio Adan instead as he was the better goalkeeper.

“I do not fear for my job,” he said. “This is football. Everyone knows that people have short memories in this game. The players tried here and they tried against Espanyol, but we have no luck.

“[Leaving Casillas out] was purely a technical decision. I analysed the situation and chose the team."
