Silvino Louro has poured scorn on suggestions that Jose Mourinho could depart Real Madrid in the near future by highlighting the fact the 49-year-old’s contract is not due to expire until 2016.
The Portuguese’s reign is under increasing scrutiny, having led the Blancos to their fourth Liga defeat of the season following the 3-2 reverse to Malaga on Saturday.
Madrid lie 16 points behind league leaders Barcelona midway through the campaign, but the goalkeeping coach insists Mourinho is staying put in the Spanish capital for the foreseeable future, and believes the winter break can help their pursuit of silverware.
“Mourinho is not going anywhere. He has a contract until 2016,” Louro told Record.
“The league cannot tell us anything yet but we have to recharge our batteries for the rest of the Liga campaign, and, especially in the Copa del Rey and Champions League, we must try to win something this season.”
Real Madrid resume training on December 30 as they look to challenge on all fronts for the remainder of the season.
