Spanish giants Real Madrid were held to a 0-0 draw by La Liga newbies Sporting Gijon in their opening league match of the 2015-16 season at El Molinón today.

The visitors started the match strongly, dominating possession, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale involved in most of their side’s attacking moves. The Welshman came close to scoring in the 13th minute itself, with the Gijon keeper far out of his comfort zone.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is back in town and was quick to declare that his Belgian winger Eden Hazard is the best footballer in England. In fact, Mourinho didn't just stop there, stating that Hazard is better than Cristiano Ronaldo simply on the premise that the former led Chelsea to the Premier League crown last season, while Ronaldo failed in his quest to help Real Madrid pick up any silverware whatsoever.

Mourinho was in a chatty mood with journalists and spoke about a lot of issues, including throwing pot shots at rivals Arsene Wenger and Manuel Pellegrini, but his focus remains his own team as always, and Jose was quick to talk up the ability of Hazard.
