Ex-Barcelona president Joan Laporta has surprisingly praised Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho. Laporta has fired barbs at Mou over the past two seasons, but is happy to see him apologise for his clash with Barca coach Tito Vilanova last season.

"I really liked that Mourinho fixed his position on the issue of Tito. I think he's a great professional and with this change we've all moved on," smiled Laporta.
