Former Spain Coach Luis Aragones believes Jose Mourinho has the qualities to mastermind a Real Madrid fightback in the La Liga title race.
The reigning champions are already eight points behind Barcelona with just seven games played.
- In my view the merit of Mourinho is tremendous for all he has done and achieved, the Euro 2008 winning tactician told Spanish sports paper, O Jogo.
- I don't know what went on in the locker room, but I think the players are with him. Last year they were able to overcome Barca, and we know how difficult that is. They won the championship brilliantly.
- They had a bad start this year with results below expectations, and when that happens we talk problems, but in the last few games they have been better. I think they will soon return to the level the fans are accustomed to.
- There are a lot of games for Real to recover the deficit. For a team like them, nothing is lost.
