Mourinho slams Real Madrid for 'unacceptable' defeat to Getafe

The Portuguese trainer lamented the lackluster display of his side as it suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of Getafe to remain without a win in La Liga this season

Jose Mourinho has heavily criticized his Real Madrid side, lamenting its 'unacceptable' performance as it was defeated by Getafe.

Los Blancos took a first-half lead through Gonzalo Higuain but some poor defending in the second half offered Luis Garcia Plaza's men a route back into the game. They duly obliged with strikes from Juan Valera and Abdelaziz Barrada to leave Real Madrid with just one point from a possible six so far this season.

"It was an unacceptable game, in this match for me it is not a frustrating defeat. We totally deserved to lose," Mourinho said to reporters after the game. "There are things that a coach cannot discuss with the press. I haven't talked to the players. They have no feedback on what I think and what I have analysed. I have to talk to them.

"The only conclusion that I want them to get is that this was a defeat for Real Madrid and more than a well-deserved win for Getafe."

The Portuguese coach queried two key refereeing decisions, admitting that his players had suggested that Adrian Colunga had handled the ball in the build-up to the winner and also casting doubts over the dismissal of Fabio Coentrao from the bench.

"I have just heard what my players said about the second goal. They said it was handball by Colunga [who assisted the goal]," he said. "The referee accused Coentrao of saying a word nobody on the bench heard."

Following Barcelona's 2-1 win over Osasuna earlier on Sunday, Madrid already sit five points adrift of its arch rival and Mourinho revealed his disappointment at such a gap.

"It could be six if we had lost the first game," he said. "But we are five [adrift] which is too many points when only six have been contested. But today was a different match. Against Valencia we did more to win. Today, we fully deserved to lose."
