According to Spanish newspaper AS, Jose Mourinho talked with Florentino Perez about turning things around after the 3-2 loss to Malaga.
Mourinho met Perez before departing for Portugal for the Christmas break, signaling a change in Mou’s demeanor.
“If I felt that like the players didn’t want to win, I would leave, I am too honest to continue a losing battle. I would be the first one to say so, but the players want to win. I’ve told them that they can go home with a clear conscience, they did as well as they could.” – said The Special One for the press, after the match against Malaga.
“The press cannot be blamed for the fact we are 16 points behind Barcelona or for the fact we have lost seven games (in all competitions). We have to take a look at ourselves.” – said The Special One for the press, after the match against Malaga.
Mourinho has “tightened up” the player’s Christmas holiday as they are all supposed to come back in Madrid on the 30th December in hopes of solving their issues and turning the season around.
