Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has stressed that the squad are still in full support of head coach Jose Mourinho, despite the recent incident involving Barcelona assistant coach Tito Vilanova.
The Portuguese tactician has come under scrutiny following his behaviour in the Spanish Supercopa clash with Barca and could face a suspension of up to 12 games following a brawl late in the second leg of the tie, which the Catalan side won 5-4 win on aggregate.
"Mourinho has the full support of the squad. He leads this group of players. We're ready to do whatever he wants. He will always have our support, just like we have his," Ramos remarked, as reported on the club's official website.
The Spain international then looked back at his side's 2-1 Trofeo Santiago Bernabeu win over Galatasaray on Wednesday, a match where Ramos netted the equaliser as the capital club came from behind to clinch victory.
"This is an important tournament to us. It's good for us to win another game and dedicate it to our supporters. We want to have a good start to the season.
"You can't live off the past in football. We have a long season ahead of us and that's what we're thinking about."
