Real Madrid's manager Jose Mourinho will continue to coach the side in the next season as he received a contract extension for a year. This despite his team's recent defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final.

According to reports, Mourinho is scheduled to meet the club's president, Florentino Perez next week to discuss his plans for the team and strategize. The meeting was arranged before the semi-final clash which eventually saw the Portugese coach accuse the UEFA of favouring Barcelona.

Despite his accusations, the Portugese himself has been at the receiving end of various criticism for his style of play and his latest barrage against the European Football's governing body only raises concerns in the board room, of the potential damage at hand, despite the team itself publicly backing it's manager.

Madrid are eight points behind Barcelona with four games to go leading to even the club's honorary president, Alfredo Di Stefano, describing Madrid as "a mouse to Barcelona's lion."
