Mourinho: We are not humiliatedReal Madrid coach Jose Mourinho claims his side is not humiliated by their 5-0 defeat to Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
The Portuguese came into the match being unbeaten in 19 competitive games and with a one-point lead over his opponents.
But that record was soon wiped away as Mourinho was handed his first defeat in charge of Madrid which was also his heaviest loss he has suffered in his managerial career.
A brace by David Villa and goals from Xavi, Pedro and substitute Jeffrén Suárez completed the rout by Barcelona over their bitter arch-rivals.
Speaking after the match, the Special One looked unfazed by the heavy defeat but conceded that his side were second-best.
"One team played very good, one team very bad," Mourinho commented in a post-match press conference.
"One deserved to win and one deserved to lose.
"Humiliated? No. It's easy to deal with this loss, we just weren't good enough."
And the Madrid coach went on to admit he was not pleased with his side's defending in the first half.
"We gifted them two goals that were almost ridiculous," he said.
Mourinho remained in the dugout as his side capitulated in the second period, but said there was nothing he could do to prevent the heavy defeat.
"I was watching the game. I tried to change things at the interval and we came out quite well, but then they scored again and there was nothing I could do - the game was lost," he said.
The defeat sees Madrid drop to second in the Primera Division after 13 rounds of matches, but with 25 games left, Mourinho is not panicking just yet....being a human...
