The Portuguese boss lavished praise on the pair after their virtuoso performances in what he felt was an entertaining game for all to see
“Messi and Ronaldo are from another planet. I want my player to win [the Ballon d’Or], but they are both fantastic,” enthused Mourinho.
“As a coach, I’ve enjoyed the game. It was a great match and the result wasn’t decided until the final moment. Everyone has enjoyed the game too.”
“Ozil provided us with quality and had a great match.”
The flamboyant coach refuses to discuss the referee’s performance in detail, but did state that the man in black made a vital mistake.
“Real Madrid are a club of gentlemen. You can’t speak about the referees. If there is a philosophy to follow then I have to adapt to it and in truth I like it.
“I’ll take a great match and a good referee, who at one moment in the match made a key mistake, like the players and I also do sometimes.”
