Sevilla 1-0 Real Madrid – Mourinho’s Comments

Last night Real Madrid lost 1-0 to Sevilla, leaving the Spanish Champions with 4 points after 4 games. After the game manager Jose Mourinho did not make excuses for his team’s loss. Mourinho said after the game;

“From the first to the last minute we were poor. We were bad in the first half and we were bad in the second half too. They really deserved the win and we deserved the loss more. I little more, I mean. Congratulations to them and we got what we deserved for how badly we played.”

“We have to work more and harder on set pieces and each player knows who he needs to mark and his job at set pieces. In the 1st min a goal from a corner! This shows the image of my team lacking concentration without being mentally prepared to suffer. The opposition went for every ball with the perfect amount of aggression as when they had the ball they wanted to play and think fast.”

“At this time my team isn’t up to scratch but, but I’m the coach and the responsibility is mine.”
He then spoke about player performances as a team;

“Di María and Özil were not worse than others. The image of the team was bad from the first minute, I think today’s match was no different from those against of Getafe and Granada which we won. So I don’t think that the rumours of the last couple of weeks have anything to do with it.”

“It is about a state of mind and of two or three who aren’t thinking like the rest. They are the minds of players which are not committed and for whom football is not a priority in their lives. There aren’t many involved and it’s complicated, but I’m coach and if there are those less committed then it is my fault. That [my teams’s performance] is my concern rather than points. At this moment I have no team.”

Mourinho has a bit of a dig at his players at the end there, which they may well deserve but he is clearly trying to push the blame off himself. The last line he says is completely true and something that he is clearly worried about. One thing that did surprise me was this upcoming quote;

“I made two changes, but I could have made seven. In football you should be allowed to make more changes. You cannot stop the match more than three times to make changes and that is correct, but you should be able to make more changes”

I find it quite strange there that he is also having a dig at FIFA, when the same rules for substitutes have applied for ages, yet he brings the suggestion now, as soon as his team doesn’t perform. I don’t know what Mourinho is trying to do, but I don’t think it will please many fans.
