Perez Lays Down Law To Mourinho

Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has given coach Jose Mourinho two options to solve teams striker problem. Either bring back Ruud van Nistelrooy to the Bernabeu or start to play youngster Alvaro Morata more.

According to Tomas Roncero of AS:

“The problem is that the boss has caused a problem when one does not exist. Instead of enjoying the struggle with the league, the cup and the fantastic match against Atletico, they have gone into self destruct about whether or not a striker will be introduced to help for six months. This tension has caused bleeding and Real are now two wins away from overtaking the league leader [Barcelona]. The Portuguese coach has been given everything he has asked for so far and Van Nistelrooy is considered the last,”

Big decision for Mourinho as he has traditionally went with experienced players like van Nistelrooy over a youngster like Morata. It will be interesting to see what decision he makes this time.
