Real Madrid coach Mourinho refuses to fast-track Jese

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says Jese Rodriguez still has a long way to go.

The teen has seen action in the Copa.

"I see him as having the right mentality and being excited to play. The other day he played 90 minutes after the match was pretty tired. He said that he has not played an entire match for a while," said Mourinho.

"For his team, Castilla, he is not a starter and I will not venture to say that it is ready for a match of this magnitude. I like to reward players and the lad played a very good match against Alcoyano. Jesé Rodríguez got into the team on merit, I am not worried because he, with his enthusiasm, will have a positive response."
