Real Madrid boss Mourinho explains mystery behind secret note

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho explained the contents of his secret note handed to Pepe during victory over Real Mallorca.

Mourinho often communicates to his players with notes during games.

"I had the note I gave Pepe ready in case we scored a second goal," said Mourinho.

"We had to take risks in the second half to win and the note specified the changes we would have to make if we scored again. I know it's hard to communicate things when spirits flare and the note specified the changes, with Callejon falling back to the right back position to balance out our game."
