Jose Mourinho won his first game in charge of Real Madrid, 3-2 in a friendly against Mexico’s Club America. Of course he did. Did you expect anything less? Mourinho is a natural born winner and I can’t wait to see Real and Barcelona crack heads this season. It should be titanic.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who finally has a boss at least as arrogant as he is, scored the winner late on with a superb free-kick. Earlier, new signing Sergio Canales opened the scoring. He is such a big talent and will be one to watch in La Liga. He could be to Real what Pedro is to Barca.

I was interested to hear Mourinho praising Ronaldo’s amazing work ethic this week. The one thing about Ronaldo that is often overlooked is his commitment to football – call him a Guido and a narcissist if you want, but don’t call him lazy or out of shape. He really is the most magnificent footballer in so many ways.
