Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon insists he never had any doubts over coach Bernd Schuster. After victory over BATE Borisov and early qualification for the next round of the Champions League, Calderon said: "This club always generates controversy.

"I read 'Schuster sacked, Ancelotti replaces him ...'. (Predrag) Mijatovic has never spoken to (Carlo) Ancelotti. We have peace of mind, we're not in a crisis situation.

"If we had won at Valladolid it would have been the best start in history."
