Former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has responded to rumours linking him with a return to Madrid by suggesting that he can’t train a team that already has a coach.
Real Madrid have endured an inconsistent start to the season with Los Blancos winning just two of their first four league games and conceding in every single one of them.
