Mou Hits Out At Modern Values

Jose Mourinho has hit out at the values of modern football following his exit from Real Madrid and says that he has no intention of voicing the negatives of his time in Spain.

The Portuguese saw a turbulent run at the Spanish giants come to an end on Saturday, but the coach has refused to focus on the negatives following his exit.

One thing the coach did say though, was that nowadays it was getting more difficult to get a group of players to work together.

"I believe success depends on objectives being reached for by a group, who are able identify, establish and fight for those goals," he told Jornal de Noticias.

"It's becoming more and more difficult for a group to work as one. Values have been lost - education and professionalism are becoming worse and worse.

"It is a problem in current society and football in particular - working as groups, not individually."

Mourinho also said that he has no intention of going public with his thoughts on his time in Spain.

"I like to open and close my coaching cycles without talking about the downsides," the coach added. "I'll try not to speak to the Spanish media because of this."
