Mourinho lands new Real role
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has been appointed the club's head of football operations.
Mourinho, who took over as Real manager in 2010, clashed with former director Jorge Valdano last season and the Argentine was ultimately sacked from his role in May.
Now, as part of a restructuring following Valdano's departure, Mourinho takes over the responsibilities as head of football operations. The former Chelsea manager will continue to work closely alongside sporting director and France great Zinedine Zidane, who has also taken on a more active role since Valdano's exit.
In his debut campain in charge of Los Blancos, Mourinho failed to wrestle the Primera Division title off Barcelona, finishing four points behind their rivals. He did, however, lift the Copa del Rey.
