Barcelona icon Cruyff tells Real Madrid critics to blame Florentino not Mourinho

Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff says Real Madrid president Florentino Perez should be the target of anyone's anger. Cruyff says Real's performances are the responsibility of Perez, not coach Jose Mourinho.

"Mourinho has done his job. In his own way. As he understands football. But he's just the coach. Above him there is someone who decides everything. The President is in charge . The president is who makes the line of the club. The president will decide what they want and how he wants his team to perform. And then you get your coach," said Cruyff.

"Florentino signed Mourinho to end the supremacy of Barca at any price. Disrespect professional football, complain about everything, he does not care. So long as Real Madrid win."
