Sergio Ramos declares that he wants Jose Mourinho to stay at Real Madrid despite reports of rows between the Portuguese and his players in recent weeks.

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has declared that Jose Mourinho should stay at the club and insists that the dressing room is happy with the coach.

Mourinho's position at the Bernabeu has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months as Madrid have fallen further behind leaders Barcelona in the La Liga title race.

Ramos concedes that he is unsure if the Portuguese coach will stay in Spain but insists that he wants Mourinho to remain their manager amid rumours of unrest at the club.

He told The Observer when asked if he thought Mourinho would be Madrid manager next season: "Let's hope so. But that's his decision. He's a great coach and we have been lucky to have had him.

"The decision is in his hands; he has to decide what he does. We're happy with him. Football is results. Clubs look for quick changes, solutions straight away. And when a team as big as this one, with so much repercussion, goes three games without winning people look for quick changes because it's not normal.

"The scapegoat at good moments and bad is always the coach. He always pays for the broken plates. He's the one that's changed [sacked] first. If the coach does not get results, he's the first one in people's sights. And then if they get rid of the coach and it does not go well, they look at the president."

Madrid warmed up for Wednesday's Champions League match with Manchester United by beating Sevilla 4-1 in La Liga last night.
