Real Madrid boss Mourinho blasts Spanish fixture makers

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has hit out at the fixture makers in Spain.

Mourinho was less impressed by the fixture scheduling which sees his side play three games in under a week. The capital club met Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday, played Sociedad last night and meet Espanyol on Tuesday night.

He said: "Why wasn't the Hercules-Valencia match played today? Valencia played [in the Champions League] on Tuesday. Why do we have to? I hope that whilst respecting the decision of the television stations there is a little more protection for the spectacle of football and things are more even in the future.

"We have to play again on Tuesday against Espanyol and it will be difficult. I don't understand this situation: Wednesday, Saturday, Tuesday...

"It seems that life is easier for some and more difficult for others."
