Mourinho praised Real Madrid as a team but wants better play !

Posted on September 25, 2012 by admin

Jose Mourinho was happy that his Real Madrid players showed their coomitment as a team and took all three points from Rayo Vallecano, but stated that they could play better. In truth, the scoreline should have been a lot more than 2-0. Mourinho will hope for more signs of improvement against Deportivo this weekend because the following weekend Madrid travel to the Nou Camp for El Clasico.

The Portuguese manager said that his players did well to keep their focus after the strange postponement of the match from Sunday due to an electrical failure at the ground. He knows that Madrid did not show their true quality but they competed well, and made enough chances to win easily.

Gonzalo Higuain is still strangely off target and should have bagged at least two goals. Even Ronaldo managed to miss an open goal when he looked sure to score. Christiano made no mistake from the penalty spot, however, and Benzema could not miss his opener in the fist half.

Di Maria had a great game for the visitors, and Modric showed his skill and vision. Ozil showed more energy and drive than the Croatian when he came on so it gives Mourinho an interesting choice between them. Sergio Ramos returned to the starting line up after being dropped against Man City, so the defender and manager are reconciled, it seems.
