Jose Mourinho has revealed that Real Madrid let the League slip away from them 'too soon'.
Los Blancos are currently 13 points behind Barcelona in the table with just eight games of the season left to play.
But the Portuguese Coach has insisted that the 2012/12 campaign has still been a successful one.
“We will play the final of the Copa del Rey, and we're not far from the Champions League semi-finals,” he told Goyco.
“But we lost the League too soon.
“In this League there are the two best teams in Europe – and last year we won it.”
