Due to current reports in the media Real Madrid’s captains would like to communicate the following:
1. That in the meeting held on Tuesday with the club’s President and Director General there was no ultimatum from us regarding our coach.
2. As squad captains and members of an excellent group of people and professionals we categorically reject the use of our names or any of the rest of our squad in support of any such information that we label in its entirety as false.
3. We want to show our support for our coach, Jose Mourinho, for whom we have the greatest respect.
4. Finally, we wish to convey to all Real Madrid club members and followers our unwavering conviction that only through the unity of everyone connected with Real Madrid will we overcome, as always, all of the challenges that we face each season.
Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos
