Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol insists that there was nothing major in the recent argument between Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho.

Raul Albiol has moved to cool down a recent fall-out between his Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and coach Jose Mourinho.

The pair are said to have clashed after Madrid's 2-0 victory against Valencia in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday evening.

However, centre-back Albiol has insisted that there is no major problem between the Portuguese duo.

"Ronaldo and Mourinho are both winners," he told reporters. "They only exchanged their opinions. What happened does in no way affect the rest of the team."

Speculation over the last few weeks has suggested that Ronaldo's days as a Madrid player could be numbered.
