Real Madrid No2 Aitor Karanka insists rumours around Jose Mourinho's future isn't making it to the locker room. Karanka says he ignores all the rumours.

"The only person who knows what will happen is the coach and we are fed up of saying it, we don't give any consideration to the rumours," the 39-year-old told reporters at a press conference.

"I have spent two and a half years with Mourinho and if we paid attention to all of these rumours it would be a disservice to him.

"He shows his strength on the pitch and in the office, which is the way it should be."
