Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho insists there's no problem with Xabi Alonso.

Xabi was taken off in the second-half of their draw with Manchester United last week.

"He had a great match even though he was having difficulties. Not many would play in his state. I loved everything, at the break he was almost brought off but he gave every that he had and now he has to rest. He will not play this weekend," said Mourinho.
