Barcelona defender Eric Abidal has said that, in his view, Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho talks to much and likes to play games with the media.

The Frenchman, who joined Barcelona in 2007 from Lyon, believes that the Portuguese boss is always spouting off to the media, but dismisses its effect, stating he watches no television and reads no newspapers.

"Mourinho is a guy who talks a lot, the way they see things and saying what [he] thinks", Abidal told Don Balon. "But as I watch no television or [read] no newspapers, it does not affect me. It’s a game he wants to play with the media, this is his life [from years ago] and he does it very well."

Barcelona travel to Real Zaragoza this weekend in La Liga and, one point behind Mourinho’s Real Madrid, will want to ensure they do not lose ground. Real Madrid face Racing Santander at the Bernabeu, a match they are widely expected to win.
