Real boss pleased with Sahin boost

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho believes Nuri Sahin will have regained confidence after finding the net during his side’s 5-1 thrashing of Ponferradina.

Sahin joined the Spanish club from German side Dortmound during the summer, but has suffered from injuries problems and has been unable to win a first team place.

However, he took his chance midweek, netting on of his side’s five goals as Real completed a 7-1 aggregate victory in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey.
