Iker Casillas has revealed that he shook the hand of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho last night.
As reported by the Mirror, the shot-stopper, who starred for Porto as they secured a 2-1 victory over the Blues in the Champions League, claims the Portuguese tactician wished him 'all the best'.
Casillas and Mourinho endured a rocky relationship during their time together at Spanish giants Real Madrid. The enigmatic manager made the surprise call to drop Casillas as Real's No.1 goalkeeper, but it appears that they've now put their differences aside.

"I bumped into Mourinho and I shook his hand," Casillas told Spanish television."See you in London... all the best,' he said to me."
Last night's defeat has certainly given Chelsea something to think about in Europe, with Dynamo Kiev and Porto now ahead of the Blues in Group G. The Stamford Bridge outfit are set to take on Kiev in their next European fixture, while Casillas and Co. will take on bottom of the group Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Real Madrid reunion
A victory over Tel Aviv would put Porto in a great position in their pursuit of the knockout stages - and Casillas has revealed that he would love to play against his former side Real Madrid in the Round of 16.
He continued by saying: "I would love to play against Real Madrid in the round of 16.
"I hope that everything goes well for them and they win both trophies in Spain."
Let's be honest, last night's result in Portugal is by no means a disaster for Chelsea, but they must improve sooner rather than later. Incredibly, despite still being in September, the Blues have already lost five games in all competitions this season.
Mourinho's side should still qualify for the next round, but the club's leading players must rediscover their best form. This can't go on.
