BARCELONA, Spain — Coach Jose Mourinho showed no regret for defensive tactics after Real Madrid was knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Barcelona on Wednesday despite a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou in the second leg.
Madrid came back from a 2-0 first-half deficit, but a poor performance in the 2-1 opening-leg defeat was enough to see the Catalans through.
Mourinho's future has come under scrutiny after he was jeered by his fans last week when reports emerged of strife within the squad over the first-leg gameplan.
Asked if he had erred with his opening-leg strategy, the Portuguese coach responded simply with "no."
Mourinho again criticized the refereeing, with his players complaining it was "impossible" to win at the Camp Nou.
