Real Madrid’s first-year Portuguese manager JOSE MOURINHO has stated that Los Blanocs were not humiliated by the monumental 5-0 defeat at the hands of La Liga arch-rival FC Barcelona.
For as respected and admired as the Portuguese manager is, the blog cannot agree.
It was an ass-kicking.
The good news is, to cancel out this result, Real Madrid need simply to win the return La Liga match later in the season at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Reasonable enough, considering the amount of preparation time and film footage the normally masterful Mourinho will have to make use of. What it will boil down to will be points dropped from the matches against the other teams in the Spanish Primera Division.
Up to this point, Real Madrid have done a better job at that.
Mourinho’s ship merely needs to stay the present course in La Liga and take care of business at home. One result does not a championship season in football make. It was an ass-kicking, though…
