Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourinho Warns Opponents That Someone Will Pay For Missed Chances Against Ajax

Jose Mourinho is not concerned by Real Madrid's wastefulness in front of goal in Champions League win over Ajax.
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho said his side played very well in their 2-0 win over Ajax in the UEFA Champions League and warned that some opponent will pay dearly for the chances the Blancos missed against the Dutch side.

The Merengues were in complete control throughout the contest, creating an incredible 35 shots at goal yet only two found the net - a first half own-goal from Vurnon Anita and a second half tap-in from Gonzalo Higuain.

We played very well, we pressed a lot and did not let them play as they like. One day some poor team will pay for all these chances we missed," he told a press conference.

When asked if the game was a case of men against boys, Mourinho said, "It was a game of boys against boys because Madrid has a team of boys. If you take out [Iker] Casillas and [Ricardo] Carvalho then it's a team of all boys, less so Xabi Alonso who is the father."

Mourinho noted that his team could have been more efficient but at this stage of the competition he is not very concerned. Nor is he concerned by Cristiano Ronaldo's failure to get on the score sheet in the tie.

"We lacked efficiency, but we won because we dominated the game. The result could be higher, but at this stage the goals are not as important as in the knockouts,"
he remarked.

"I'm not concerned that Cristiano has not scored. The goals will come. He has worked very well and can score a couple of goals in any game. You must let Cristiano and Higuain be, many coaches would like to have these forwards. Goals will come."
