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.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
