Madrid: Jose Mourinho pledged his future to Real Madrid on Wednesday despite failing to reach the Champions League final for the second straight season.
"If the club and the players want me to continue, I will," Mourinho said after Madrid bowed out 3-1 on penalties to Bayern Munich after the two-legged series closed 3-3 on aggregate.
"I'm super proud of them," Mourinho, who is contracted to Madrid until 2014, said of his team. "It's difficult for a team to reach the semifinals in two straight years and for a coach to reach six in eight years. We deserved to win."
