Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourinho: We Played Against One Goalkeeper And 10 Defenders

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho was incensed at the end of his team's 0-0 stalemate with Deportivo La Coruna.

For the majority of the second half, Madrid laid siege on the home side's goal but to no avail and the Portuguese was not impressed with Os Turcos' tactical plans.

Speaking to AS, the former Chelsea and Inter boss held nothing back as he spoke his mind after the game. ''We played against one goalkeeper and 10 defenders for the second half. Only one team played to win. The other played to exhaustion and defended and they won the prize. We, who tried to win, are penalised for this.'' he vehemently added.

His rage did not end there as he moved on to the fixture planners. ''It is not normal that after a European game we are made to play on Saturday. This is not the first time. They do what they want and that's that. They just sit back and laugh at me.

"I do not know what would have happened if we had played on Sunday but it would have been fairer. We would have taken a day off to get over the tiredness. Ask the experts in biochemistry and sports physiology. They know what they are doing,'' he boldly articulated.

However, the complaining stopped here as he heaped praise on his players for their relentless endeavours. ''What counts is the result. I cannot criticise my players for their efforts as they did all they can.''

The pressure is now telling on the charismatic coach. With only 13 games remaining in the league, his Madrid side now trail Barcelona by seven points.
