hough he is finally hanging up his boots and retiring from professional football, Alvaro Arbeloa couldn't leave without passing on an anecdote about former Real Madrid coach, Jose Mourinho.
Asked about his relationship with the Portuguese, the defender gave an example that illustrated how good it was.
"An anecdote? We played a game against Sevilla and we were winning in the first half," Arbeloa began.
"He called me Cafu eight times; "The team is fine, but we have Cafu there ... " he said over and over again.
"I knew that I had played well and I decided not to work so hard in the second half but he called me Cafu 300 times in 10 minutes (laughs).
"It was his way of working and understanding football."
