Mourinho: I am ideal coach for Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho says he can handle the pressure of being Real Madrid coach because he is the Special Juan. Mourinho insists his arrival is unique to Real because such is his reputation that failure will only mean he moves to "another great club".

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan coach explained: "My profile as coach is different from what Madrid has had in all these years.

"If things go wrong here and I have to go, I will have a club the next day. But not Palmeiras or Gavá or in my own city. I would again be with one of the best clubs in the world.

"This personal stability that I have allows me to say I'm the ideal person to be in Madrid, because I have no fear of anything. Real needs stability and I'm here to give it. My track record speaks for my work.

"Real are in many ways a conflict of ideas in football. Coach after coach after coach, it needs stability. We are in the construction phase of the project."
