Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho refused to discuss his relationship with Zinedine Zidane at yesterday's Champions League media conference.

Zidane mysteriously left Real in the summer to pursue his coaching career in France, which sparked talk of a row with Mourinho.

The coach remarked yesterday: "I'm not anyone to say anything about it. I limit myself to saying that I hope he's happy and that he is as successful in his career as he has been as a player, but I'm not anybody to evaluate him."
