Jose Mourinho: 'Everything is normal'

Jose Mourinho: 'Everything is normal'

Jose Mourinho has dismissed talk of unrest at Real Madrid and insisted his relationship with the club's directors is "the same as ever".

Defending Spanish champions Madrid slipped 11 points behind current leaders Barcelona following Saturday's surprise 1-0 defeat at Real Betis was followed by the Catalans' 4-0 win at Levante a day later.

They are also eight points adrift of city rivals Atletico in second.

The weekend loss was met with condemnation from the media amid rumours over Mourinho's future. But the former Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan boss was adamant there was no need to panic.

He said at a press conference on Monday: "I feel good, I am in perfect health and working as I have done for many years.

"I do not understand the question about my relationship with the club - it is the same as ever.

"My relationship with the players is the same as always. It naturally depends on results. When you win, naturally things are better than when you lose. But everything is normal."

Mourinho's men have won just two of their last five games in all competitions but the Portuguese believes the end of the season would be a better time to make assessments.

He added: "I am simply an employee of the club, like everyone else. I do my best. At the end of the season, we can make calm judgments.

"It is possible that at the end of the season the club are not happy with my work. I am here giving my all as always.

"The most important thing for me is that I continue to have a strong personal relationship with the president, just as I had with Abramovich (at Chelsea) and Moratti (at Inter)."

Madrid are next in action on Tuesday night when they meet third-tier Alcoyano at the Bernabeu in the Copa del Rey.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
