Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho refused to discuss with the media comments from president Florentino Perez yesterday.

Perez gave Mourinho a public vote of confidence at a function.

Mourinho said: "I've said before that I think a coach shouldn't discuss comments from his president. They shouldn't be ignored; to the contrary, I don't ignore them. He should analyze, draw conclusions but shouldn't make any kind of public comment.

"The reaction that I had after analyzing the statements has already been talked about with the person I had to talk to and that's the president. We already spoke about it this morning and I don't think there's anything more to discuss."
