Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has insisted that the Primera Division is not decided just yet, despite Madrid's seven-point lead over arch-rivals Barcelona, and has hit out at the Spanish press for claiming differently.

Madrid beat Real Zaragoza 3-1 last weekend, while Barcelona were held to a scoreless draw by Villarreal.

Los Blancos consequently moved seven points clear of the Catalans, but Mourinho disagrees with the domestic press that Madrid can not miss out on the title any more.

"Is seven points a lot? The press might think so, but I disagree," Mourinho said in an interview with Lusa.

"The people who write that we are the new champions and that Barcelona can't bounce back are the same people who previously tried to create divisions and conflicts at Madrid.

"They will claim that we are in crisis again as soon as we spill points again. They're the ones trying to undermine the balance at Madrid. I am calm though and ready to deal with anything good or bad."

Madrid's next game is the away match versus Getafe on February 4.
