thumbnail Hello,

The former Madrid president believes the playing squad will have been angered by criticism of their performances following Saturday's defeat

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon feels that head coach Jose Mourinho was wrong to criticise his team in the aftermath of Los Blancos' 1-0 defeat to Sevilla.

The flamboyant coach stated that he "does not have a team" following the surprise loss, while also voicing his unhappiness with his side's collective spirit.

However, Calderon believes that the Madrid players could just as easily complain about Mourinho in the current situation.

"Mourinho's comments don't help the team in any way. The players could just as easily say that they don't have a coach right now," Calderon stated to RAC1.

"It would be better to see these losses as incidents. I imagine that the players are not too happy with Mourinho's comments.

"I believe that the team is fully committed to the team. The players are giving their all out there on the pitch."

Madrid have already dropped eight points in the opening weeks of the 2012-13 campaign, and sit only 11th in the Liga table.
