Mourinho continues Spanish media blackout
MADRID (AP) -- Real Madrid assistant Aitor Karanka offered few hints of when coach Jose Mourinho may address local media again this season after the Portuguese coach missed his 45th news conference Friday since taking over the Spanish club in 2010.
Karanka says Mourinho will "speak when he has to speak. Some moments he comes out and others I come out, that's his way of working, that's the way it is.''
Mourinho chose to stop speaking to the media following a recent run of draws that saw the Spanish leader's 10-point lead over Barcelona trimmed to four. Under Champions League regulations, he has to speak ahead of Tuesday's match at Bayern Munich.
Madrid next plays Sporting Gijon, whose coach Javier Clemente is also refusing to address Spanish media before Saturday's game.
