Mourinho: Crisis? What crisis?

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says there is no crisis at Real Madrid, despite the team having failed to score in their last two La Liga games.

• Jose worried by Real form

Real lost 1-0 to Levante, before drawing 0-0 to Racing Santander on Wednesday evening to drop to seventh in the table and now face Rayo Vallecano with the pressure on Mourinho mounting.

The Portuguese coach, though, does not believe that their recent blip warrants quite so much attention.

"Some people are talking about a crisis, a dramatic situation in which we couldn't even fight to stay up,'' he said. ''There are people interested in talking about this crisis and people that just stick to the facts: that there is no crisis, rather that we have not played well the past week.

"Three bad games, but that is one week, not three weeks of crisis. This is not a crisis, just a negative situation. It is always easy to motivate players coming off poor results.

"If you are complacent you can get stuck in a complacent mindset, but if you are ambitious like us it is a starting point to find new motivation."
