Mourinho: "This draw can be worth four points"

Mourinho does not usually talk to the players in the minutes following the end of the macthes. It's a habit that has to avoid any misinterpretation of his words and unnecessary friction in a time when he and the players are with high pulsation and hot heads. But there are days that he skips this rule. And one of them was in the Camp Nou.

When Delgado Ferreiro, the match referee, blew the final whistle, Mourinho went to shake hands with Tito Vilanova and commented him: "It was a great show. Both teams had chances to win the match". He went into the dressing room cursing what he considered a unique opportunity to have won at Barcelona in their field. He had mixed feelings. On one side was angry about some details, more technical than tactical, in which certain players failed. He was referring to the goals conceded and some missed chances. But on the other hand was proud of the response and the image given on a critic and hostile field.

The Portuguese coach came to the locker room in full swing. He caught the epic that Cristiano Ronaldo showed playing with sore left shoulder. Just the opposite to what he saw when Real Madrid lost in Getafe and Sevilla. In those days he would have shot all the squad. From the disaster of Sanchez Pizjuan the white team has reached the best version of the football philosophy that Mourinho has implanted. In the Camp Nou the coach congratulated them with these words: "Know that this draw can be worth four points because playing as well as tonight we can win them at the Bernabeu. We should follow this line of work. Today I liked my team. You were in the match to the end, creating chances. And we had chances to win the fight".

The players felt the same. As the board members who traveled by plane with the squad and the fans who enjoyed the game. All Madridistas saw a recovered team to fight for the Spanish League title, with courage, from the first minute of the match against Barcelona, what Real Madrid will need for fighting to the end of the season.
