Real Madrid defender Albiol enjoying progress under Mourinho

Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol is enjoying his work under coach Jose Mourinho.

Albiol feels he and the team have improved under Mourinho.

"I am grateful to the coach for having given me the chance to play," the 25-year-old told the club's website. "I have been able to get back into a rhythm and prove that I am prepared for anything.

"We are all very happy with Mourinho. I think what really matters is that he got us all to row in the same direction. He has what players think is crucial, and that is to tell you how it is to your face and to push you.

"He always has us on the brink so that we are always focused and plugged into the team. You have to be prepared at all times."
