Former Real Madrid midfielder and Coach Bernd Schuster has praised Jose Mourinho after their progression in all three competitions.
Los Blancos defeated Barcelona to reach the Copa del Rey final, have climbed to second in the League table and reached the last eight of the Champions League.
And the German believes that the Portuguese tactician is worthy of more respect than he's getting.
“Mourinho wasn't doing too badly before,” he told Marca. “And now he's doing really well.
“He maintains a line of work and the team have been prepared for this decisive moment in the season.
“People should appreciate that. The team have responded in the key moments.”
