José Mourinho has broken his silence and given an interview to French radio station 'RMC Sport'.

The Real Madrid coach spoke about his team's recent form and denied that he had caused any controversy with his team selections in the past month.

The interview will be broadcast in full this afternoon.

Objectives for the season: "Right now it's impossible for us to win the league, there is an enormous points gap. This has been a different campaign from previous seasons and we need to focus on other objectives, like the Copa del Rey and the Champions League. But we cannot allow ourselves to become obsessed, because obsession just makes things more complicated. It won't be easy at all. We have to stay calm and get the best out of our players."

Controversies: "People talk about controversies that do not exist. Every day people try and say I have done something controversial, when I have done nothing. I am a football coach, I do my job and I expect results. I do my job and I'll wait and see what happens at the end of the season."

PSG? "PSG have a great coach (Carlo Ancelotti), they have a director of football (Leonardo) that is also my friend and a president who I have known for a long time, and who is very passionate about football. There are a lot of Portuguese people in Paris and a lot of football fans. They have all the ingredients for success. It'll be good for Europe to have a city like Paris in the elite of football, I think this project is going to work.

"But I don't think I will coach PSG. Success will come to them with Ancelotti and Leonardo, they don't need another coach. I expect everything will go well for Carlo and PSG."
