Real Madrid have issued a statement dismissing reports claiming that they have lost confidence in coach Bernd Schuster in the wake of Wednesday’s Champions League defeat to Roma.
A statement on their official website claimed that the club has complete faith in the current coach.
“Following the report published in some media outlets that question whether the trainer of Real Madrid, Mr Bernd Schuster, would continue, the club would like to state the following: The stories are absolutely false and are completely unjustified,” the report stated.
“The club has had and still has complete confidence in the coach, Mr Bernd Schuster, who, consequently, does not need any further ratification.
“Madrid has the right to adjudge and evaluate the attitude of the media and to refute false stories of this nature that intend to change the existing harmony and to imply that there is a split when it is just not a reality.”
