Mourinho given Di Stefano backing

Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano has given his support to under-fire Coach Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho is increasingly unpopular in the dressing room and the stands with Madrid 16 points behind League leaders Barcelona, but Di Stefano, a former Los Blancos striker and Coach and current honorary life President, backed the Portuguese in a web chat with readers of Marca.

“Mourinho is doing a difficult job and you have to support him,” said the 86-year-old. “Especially as there is still so much to be achieved in a united season. We still have to fight for titles and I am confident that we can win the Champions League. Signings? That’s up to the Coach.”
