Real Madrid general manager Jorge Valdano insists there's no rift with new coach Jose Mourinho. Valdano has been critical of Mourinho in his past guise as a media commentator, but insists he has settled his differences with the 'Special Juan'.
"To end these rumours, I want to clarify that in my time as a journalist I have written critical pieces about Mourinho, but that was settled three years ago without knowing that we'd end up at the same club. Between us there are no problems," said Valdano.
"I am honored to have with us one of the world's leading coaches. His record already speaks for itself."
