Osasuna coach Jose Antonio Camacho has been discussing his side’s upcoming clash with Real Madrid, and on the subject of coach Jose Mourinho, the former los Blancos boss stated it was too early to assess the impact of the 'Special One' at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Camacho spent 15 years at the capital club as a player, and also spent a brief spell in the dugout in 2004 upon leaving Benfica.
Speaking in today’s press conference, Camacho, who also spent four years in charge of the Spanish national team, said that Mourinho’s project was too much in its infancy to gauge what the club can expect from the season.
He said: “There is not a clear point of reference. I’ve talked a lot about Mourinho, but I do not know what he is going to give to Madrid. I seriously hope he makes a good team – he has a lot of personality as a coach.
“Playing against Madrid will always be difficult, but we will always try to win this match from the very start.”
He also spoke of leading his players into battle from the away dugout, and admitted that the stadium itself still means a lot to him.
“It is very beautiful, and very attractive to players, and it still holds a lot of resonance for me.”
