Real Madrid president Florentino: I won't hear criticism of Mourinho!

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has paid tribute to former coach Jose Mourinho. The Chelsea manager continues to be criticised in the Madrid press, but Perez is having none of it.

"We had to make a fist on the table to break Barca's sporting situation and with Mourinho we did that. He's a coach who has helped us, we have taken a quantum leap thanks to him, especially in Europe.

"I really like him and he did great things for the club."
