“I think game over because now everybody knows he is going to stay.”
Real president Florentino Perez also ruled out selling the player earlier this season.
“I can’t contemplate selling him, he’s a Real Madrid player, he’s important to us and he’s one of the best in the world,” the Madrid chief told reporters.
Mourinho was also left unhappy at Casemiro’s first goal not being ruled offside and saw Romelu Lukaku score on his competitive debut despite earlier fluffing an easy chance.
“We lost 2-1 which shows the result was short and one of the goals was offside so with a good VAR it would be 1-1 and extra time.”
‘It was a difficult job for Romelu to play against a team that dominates the possession. He tried and of course he missed an open goal but he had a good fight with two good central defenders,” he concluded.
