Keeper was brought to the Spanish capital by the Portuguese.
Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho will be a great loss to the Spanish giants when the Portuguese departs los Blancos at the end of the season according to goalkeeper Diego Lopez, reports Goal.com.
The self-styled ‘Special One’ and Madrid mutually agreed to go their separate ways earlier this month when the current campaign draws to a close with this weekend’s final round of Liga fixtures.
And that will bring down the curtain on Mourinho’s controversial three-year spell in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu, a period that saw the club finally get their hands back on the title from arch-rivals FC Barcelona in what was a record-breaking league season last year.
However, apart from also winning the 2011 Copa del Rey, there have been no other trophies for Madrid under Mourinho, despite the fact that they did manage to make it through to three successive Uefa Champions League semi-finals under his stewardship, all though ending in defeat.
Lopez, however, insists that Real will miss Mourinho, telling reporters: “He will be a great loss to Madrid.
“Mourinho is a great coach and he has done big things for my career.
“It’s in my plans to continue.
“I think that competition between goalkeepers is positive and I’ve always tried to do things as well as possible.
“I’ve already said that every minute at Real Madrid is golden and that’s what I want to do – take advantage of every opportunity I have to play.”
