Mou: We Can't Catch Barca

Wednesday was a day of admissions for Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho.

Of the greatest concern to the Spanish club’s legion of global fans, The Special One conceded that they will not defend their La Liga title.

Real are currently 15 points behind their great rivals and league leaders Barcelona, and Mou accepts that Barca now present an unscalable obstacle in their path.

"The La Liga title is impossible now, there is too big a gap,” Mourinho told RMC Sport.

“We have to focus on other goals like the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.

“It does no good to obsess over these things, obsession only makes things more complicated. Nothing will be easy. We need to stay calm and make the most of every opportunity."

Mou’s second admission yesterday was that he will not be replacing Carlo Ancelotti at PSG anytime soon.

The Portuguese tactician has been linked to the ambitious French club ever since his future at the Bernabeu grew murky.

But he says that PSG’s good form under Ancelotti means he is unlikely to sneak the Italian’s job from underneath him.

 "No, I don't think I will coach PSG," Mou said.

"The success of PSG with Ancelotti and Leonardo means they have no need for another coach. I hope everything goes well for Carlo and PSG.

“Europe needs to have a city like Paris competing at the top level of football and I think this project is going to work."
