Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho has built a legacy in world football, says former ... -

Former Brazil international Paulo Roberto Falcao has stated that Jose Mourinho has created his own legacy in the game, and that his Real Madrid are much better than they were last season.
The 58-year-old has been watching the Santiago Bernabeu outfit train this week, and is full of praise for their Portuguese coach.

"Mourinho is a very experienced coach and a great competitor," the ex-midfielder told Marca.

"He is used to winning, and has built a legacy in world football. What he did with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and now Real Madrid shows the great ability of Mourinho to win."

The capital city side are currently three points clear of arch-rivals and Primera Division holders Barcelona at the top of the standings, and Falcao feels that Los Blancos have improved over the last 12 months.

"Real Madrid have managed to be even stronger this year and more solid. Mourinho made them very good last season, but this is an important year. The team is very good.

"It is not easy to score lots and concede few. He has a great balance between attack and defence; this is what all coaches seek," he stated.

Madrid's next fixture is against Sporting Gijon on Saturday, as they look to maintain their advantage at the top of La Liga.
