Real Madrid No2 Aitor Karanka says coach Jose Mourinho remains totally committed to the cause.

Mourinho skipped the media conferences for their win over Real Zaragoza - before and after the game.

Karanka said: "What matters is that the fans support the team. Whenever they chant the coach's name he points to the pitch so that the audience supports the players, which is the most important thing of all. I believe Mourinho is as excited as ever, if not more, in every game.

"Real Madrid players know how to lose gracefully. This club's history has us accustomed to winning and not losing that way. I think the team gave a spectacular image against Barcelona. It's just another game now; we must remember the impression we made and think about our next league game."
