Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has warned the club against rehiring Jose Mourinho as speculation grows over Santiago Solari's future following Tuesday's stunning Champions League exit at the hands of Ajax.

Mourinho, out of work since he was sacked by Manchester United in December, has been linked with a return to the club where he won one league title and one Copa Del Rey between 2010 and 2013.

Calderon - who was president of Madrid between 2006 and 2009 - admitted he expects it to happen but when asked if he would like to see the Portuguese back at the Bernabeu, he said: "Absolutely not. I've already mentioned the amount of damage he caused here.

"His style of play is not what the Bernabeu wants. What the fans want is what we've just seen from Ajax; bravery, aggression with a lot of speed and boldness. Mourinho doesn't do this."
