Mourinho: The World Loved El Clasico
Article info

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho says Sunday’s 2-2 El Clasico draw with rivals Barcelona had “everything that people like”.

The eagerly anticipated clash ended all square after superstar pair Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both struck twice.

“The world will be happy because often these matches are too tactical and end goalless,” Mourinho said.

“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.”

The result leaves Real eight points behind leaders Barcelona, but Mourinho preferred to focus on their performance.

“I really enjoyed my team’s display… For me, the result reflects the match,” he said. “I’m happy because I like the club, the players, the city and the project.

“I arrived two years ago and there was a difference in the quality of football between Madrid and Barcelona and now, Barcelona have maintained the high level and both teams are equal.”
