MOURINHO HAPPY WITH CLASSICO
The Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has said that he is extremely happy with the result of the recent El Clasico that saw Real Madrid managed a 2-2 draw with Barcelona at the camp Nou. Real Madrid came into the match looking to get a victory, which would help them close the gap to Barcelona to just five points. However, they were not able to secure the much-needed winning goal in the match, but that did not worry the manager of the capital club. The former Chelsea manager said that he is extremely delighted at the performance of his team, while he is also happy with the football on the show.
Mourinho has said that the lack of too much of tactical discipline from the teams meant that it was an open and attacking football. As a result, it was a pleasure to see such a football match. The Portuguese attacker Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Real Madrid in the 23rd minute, but the Argentine superstar Lionel Messi soon equalised for Barcelona 7 min later. Then, it was the turn of Lionel Messi to give Barcelona the lead in the match through a wonderful freekick, but Cristiano Ronaldo equalised for Real Madrid minutes later.
“The world will be happy because often these matches are too tactical and end goalless. The match had everything that people like. Those fans that are in different time zones across Europe will have been awake and enjoyed this Clasico a lot and perhaps are already asking for another one in the Cup or the Champions League. I really enjoyed my team’s display… For me, the result reflects the match,” said José Mourinho after the match. As a result of the draw, Real Madrid still remain the points behind Barcelona in the table.
