Arbeloa: The Real Madrid squad has a very good relationship with Mourinho

Goal :    Real Madrid full-back Alvaro Arbeloa believes that reports claiming coach Jose Mourinho is difficult to work with have been wildly blown out of proportion.

A stuttering start to their Primera Division campaign has seen Mourinho prove critical of his players on occasion, with the former Chelsea and Inter boss’ outburst against the team following their 1-0 loss to Sevilla of particular note.

However, Arbeloa insists Los Blancos have never been more united in achieving their objectives together, maintaining that it was also normal for there to be competition for places within the side.
