Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho was booed by the majority of a sparse home crowd before the Portuguese's final match in charge against Osasuna on Saturday.

Mourinho leaves the Spanish capital after three years in charge of Real in which he won the league title last season and the Copa del Rey in 2011.

However, after a disappointing campaign in which Real have failed to win a major trophy, he was left in little doubt as to what the fans thought as the announcement of his name just before kick-off was met a chorus of boos.

Earlier on Saturday, Mourinho had thanked the Real fans for their support during his time in charge.

"I wish all the fans much happiness in the future. I thank much of the support for their support and respect the criticism of others," he told the club's website.

Mourinho has been strongly linked with a return to English side Chelsea with whom he won two Premier League titles during a previous spell in charge between 2004 and 2007.
