Jose Mourinho: Leaving Real Madrid at the end of the season

The Portuguese, who will leave the club at the end of the season, was sent to the stands midway through the second half of the 2-1 defeat to city rivals Atletico for protesting with the referee after a series of fouls were given against his team.

The suspension only applies to domestic cup games meaning Mourinho, who has been heavily linked with a summer return to Chelsea, can sit on the bench for Madrid's final two Primera Division games of the season.

Cristiano Ronaldo was handed a one-match ban for his sending-off after lashing out at Gabi in extra-time and he will miss Real's first Copa del Rey match next season.

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
