Jose denies tensions with Real boss



Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho boasted of "very, very, very good" relations with club bosses on Monday, after their latest 1-0 away loss to Real Betis.

Some Spanish media had speculated about tensions between Mourinho and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez as the club trails 11 points behind league leaders Barcelona.

"I have very, very, very good relations with the president," as well as managing director Jose Angel Sanchez and other club members, the Portuguese coach told a news conference.

"Relations could not be better," he said.

Some Spanish newspapers said Mourinho wanted Real Madrid to show greater support for his complaints about refereeing and the fixtures calendar, which he judged unfair to the team.

But the coach said he was not calling on the club to say anything. "The club is sovereign. It is up to the club to decide if it is happy with this line," Mourinho said.

Mourinho refused to discuss Saturday's loss against Betis at the news conference, held on the eve of Real Madrid's domestic King's Cup clash against Alcoyano.

"Now is the time to talk about the Cup. At the end of the season, with all the results in hand, we will set down calmly and analyse the situation," the Portuguese said.
