I won't quit, says defiant Real Madrid manager Mourinho
MADRID (AFP) - Defiant Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho insisted on Saturday that he would not be resigning despite his team crashing to a 3-2 loss at Malaga which left the champions 16 points behind leaders Barcelona.
The disappointment of the defeat was compounded by Mourinho's controversial decision to drop goalkeeper and captain Iker Casillas from the starting line-up.
Mourinho appeared incredulous when asked if he was worried about his job. "Not at all, I'm not worried about my job at all and I'm not going to resign," said the Portuguese.
"I'm not a child. I know that results count. If I felt the players did not want to continue I'd be too honest to continue. But they are not like that, we are just lacking some luck in the last few games, that is all."
