Real Madrid home fans were split over their support for Jose Mourinho during last night's Copa victory over Alcoyano. With the result already in the bag, one section of the Bernabeu began chanting Mou's name in support of the underfire coach. However, they were soon met by boos and whistles by the opposite end.

It happened again closer to the final whistle as fans made their feelings known towards the Special One.

Afterwards, asked about the fans' reaction, Real chief Emilio Butragueno said: "The fans clearly support Real Madrid and Mourinho. Fully."

Real No2 Aitor Karanka also said: "People come to the stadium and have the right to express themselves. What must we do, those who form the coaching staff, is work. There will be people who like the coach and people who will not. What is clear is that he is a professional."
