Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas was fined for turning up late to training on Monday despite having evidence for coach Jose Mourinho that he was stuck in a traffic jam.
"The week starts badly," Spain captain and goalkeeper Casillas said on his Facebook page, with an uploaded photograph of backed-up cars on a motorway.
"People from Madrid, and those who aren't, have run into traffic jams, and me in particular, has a fine imposed on me by Mourinho for arriving late at training. I add evidence!!
"PS: At least we brought home the three points from Malaga!"
Real were 4-0 winners at Malaga on Saturday and host Villarreal in their next La Liga outing on Wednesday.
