Mourinho's Press Conference Recap

Denis Doyle

Managing Madrid had the chance to be in Jose Mourinho's press conference prior to Real Madrid's game against Espanyol. He said Fàbio Coentrao will be avalaible to play against Espanyol to answer our question. The Portuguese coach also said there's no such thing as an easy match in La Liga.

First, Mourinho said he has many doubts about Benzema's status for tomorrow's game. The French striker left the match against Celta injured, so he shouldn't be avalaible to play tomorrow, according to Mourinho's words.

Then, when asked about Fàbio Coentrao's availability for tomorrow's match, Mourinho said the Portuguese left back will play if he's ready. Unless he injures himself in today's training session, Coentrao will be on Real Madrid's starting XI against Espanyol.

Mourinho expects a typical Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu. A balanced team that attacks and defends well. He didn't want to comment on Florentino Pérez's words (the President said Real Madrid had the best coach in the world) because he never responds to his bosses' comments.

Real Madrid's coach also said that in football, nobody can talk about the physical aspect of the game without considering tactics, mental preparation and so on, because this is a global spot.

Managing Madrid would like to thank once again Real Madrid's press department for this opportunity.
