Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho told his players after El Clasico that the 2-2 draw with Barcelona was worth four points, reports Marca.
The Portuguese does not normally make a habit of talking to his players in the immediate aftermath of a game, when tensions are running high and his words could be misinterpreted.
Nonetheless, Mourinho chose to make an exception at the Camp Nou after referee Delgado Ferreira had blown the final whistle, when he also shook hands with rival boss Tito Vilanova and told him ‘it was a great game where anybody could have won’.
He then went to speak with his players and congratulated them on their performance.
“You should know that this draw is worth four points because playing like this we can beat them at the Bernabeu.
“This is how we must carry on and today I liked what I saw. We were in the game and created chances right to the end. We should have won,” he is said to have told them.
