Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is wary of facing a wounded Espanyol today.

Mourinho is a big fan of new Espanyol coach Javier Aguirre, who has just replaced Mauricio Pochettino.

"Espanyol has a coach that I really like and up until a few weeks ago they had another coach that I really liked as well. I like their team, their hard work, and I think that Aguirre, with his experience and knowledge about this Liga, knows better than anyone how to change Espanyol's results," said Mourinho.

"To take advantage of Mauricio's solid work and give it his personal touch."
