Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says his friendship with Sir Alex Ferguson is as strong as ever.

Manchester United manager Ferguson was Mourinho's 'guest' for last week's Champions League first-leg clash.

"We were together in my dressing room and will did not talk about football tactics and just relaxed. Now we can do it too because we have to do press conferences. We're friends, life goes on and I will see him another week," said Mourinho.
