Iker Casillas has not been impressed with predictions that Jose Mourinho will become Real Madrid's coach in the summer just because his Inter Milan side beat Barcelona.
The Spain international goalkeeper is unhappy with all the talk about the change of trainer at the Bernabeu while current incumbent Manuel Pellegrini tries to guide the team to the title.
"The name Mourinho is on everyone's lips because Inter are playing Bayern in the Champions League final and I think it would be a mistake to think he will be our coach next season," Casillas commented.
"To talk about Mourinho is out of order and I am not contemplating him coming here.
"It is too easy to think that he should be Madrid coach because he has beaten Barca.
"Whatever has just happened is the hot topic and it just so happens that Inter eliminated Barcelona but a lot can happen."
Casillas was also not happy to see Madrid's arch rivals Barca go out of Europe at the semi-final stage.
"People were saying that Barca were the best team in the world and now it seems that everything has collapsed," he continued.
"I do not think anything like that.
"I am disappointed that Barcelona did not reach the final of the Champions League because they are a Spanish league side."
