Mourinho rubbishes rumors over quitting Real Madrid

Washington, Dec. 4 (ANI): Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has refuted claims that he is planning to quit the Spanish champions at the end of this season.

Mourinho, 49, has struggled to regain the heights of last season, with Real 11 points behind Barcelona after only 14 games in La Liga, CNN reports.

According to the report, the Los Blancos go into Tuesday's Champions League clash with Ajax already qualified for the last 16 of a competition that Mourinho has won twice before-but that his club has not triumphed in since its record ninth success in 2002.

The former Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Mourinho said he has a good relationship with Real Madrid's president.

He also dismissed suggestions he wants to join another top European club at his Monday prematch press conference, the report said. (ANI)
