Real Madrid coach Mourinho confident handling media pressure

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says he's ready for the pressure that comes with the job.

Madrid began their campaign with a 0-0 draw with Real Mallorca at the weekend and Mourinho's side came in for some criticism from the local press, but he is not worried about the task ahead of him.

"This is Madrid and you can't change it. If you can't live with this pressure it's best not to accept (the job)," he said.

"At this stage of my career it was the best time for such an experience.

"After Chelsea and Inter Milan, after 10 years of success and big clubs, after a demanding league such as Italy, I have the right age and maturity.

"I have to be prepared tactically for the possibility that we lose the ball and we get jeered. And then find some solutions to open up closed defences."
