Real Madrid president Calderon defends bonuses

Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon was pleased with last night's 1-0 Champions League victory at BATE Borisov.

He said at the final whistle: "The most important thing is that we've finished for the second consecutive match without conceding a goal. We can now enjoy the game against Zenit and hopefully we'll qualify first.

"Juventus were not able to win here and this victory was vital."

Asked about his controversial bonus scheme, Calderon added: "We can introduce these bonuses because this board manages money well and can afford to."
