Real Madrid have tweaked their title for coach Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has urged Real to follow the English model by giving the coach more control and the Portuguese appears to be getting his way.

"Real Madrid have agreed a new organisation of the club with Jose Mourinho as the sporting manager of football," read a press release on the Real Madrid website.

Mourinho took over as Madrid coach last summer and had a public spat with director general Jorge Valdano claiming the Argentine interfered too much in transfer policy.

Real president Florentino Perez sacked Valdano in May in what was seen as an action to appease Mourinho and the Portuguese has now taken over extra responsibility with his new sporting manager of football role.
