Mourinho plays down knife attack

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho was nonplussed when questioned about reports of an attempted knife attack against him in La Coruna last week.

• Ronaldo out for two weeks

Spanish radio station Cadena Ser reported on Friday that a Madrid bodyguard protecting Mourinho was injured at the airport in La Coruna prior to Real's clash with Deportivo last Saturday.

When asked about the incident at a press conference on Saturday, Mourinho said: "I don't know anything. I've not seen anything, I didn't feel anything. I arrived, went to the hotel, played the game, returned to Madrid.''

Madrid have not made any official announcement about the incident. According to the reports, the bodyguard suffered a four-centimetre cut as the team made their way through the airport.

Mourinho added: "They told me a few days ago that a bodyguard had something on his back done with something sharp. I don't know anything more. The matter is closed, for me there is no story.

"I arrived in La Coruna where there were a lot of people in the airport as always. We had the same protection as always with the team. Absolutely nothing has happened to me.''

El Periodico newspaper had reported: "Mourinho stopped to sign autographs in arrivals, where a large number of Madrid fans were waiting for the team.

"The bodyguard was near the manager and noticed he had been stabbed in the armpit. Mourinho was very worried by the incident."

Mourinho was also quizzed on the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo for Sunday's trip to improving Racing Santander at the press conference.

"Cristiano is Cristiano, and he is too important to say that we won't miss him or that we will have the same potential," Mourinho said. "We aren't hypocrites.

"But we have more players, others who are motivated to give their best, and Cristiano not playing does not change our objective.

"It will be a very difficult game, against a team that are doing well, who are motivated, full of confidence and who play well at home, but the objective doesn't change. It's more difficult without Cristiano, but we're convinced that we are going to achieve our objective."

Ronaldo has played every league game for Madrid this season and his tally of 27 goals is 20 more than his next-best team-mate.
